Report: Rupert Murdoch's LA home 'burning down' in wildfire

The home of 21st Century Fox and Fox News Executive Chairman Rupert Murdoch, located on a vineyard outside of Los Angeles, is "burning down" in Southern California’s wildfires, according to an NBC News report on Wednesday.

Bloomberg News reported earlier Wednesday that the area around Murdoch's Moraga vineyard in Bel Air was ordered evacuated as firefighters battled wind-whipped fires that continue to spread. 

Murdoch's property is "a wine growing estate in the Santa Monica Mountains at an elevation of 600 to 900 feet, five miles from the Pacific Ocean," according to Moraga’s website.

The 86-year-old Australian-born media mogul lives in a 7,500-square-foot house on the estate with wife Jerry Hall. 

The Hill has reached out to 21st Century Fox for comment.

Murdoch acquired the 13-acre property in 2013 for $28.8 million, according to Forbes.

President Trump tweeted his thanks to first responders while writing that thoughts and prayers were with everyone in the fire's path.
