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

Wildfires raging throughout California have reached the house of Rupert Murdoch, according to NBC News.

Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti has declared a state of emergency, with the so-called Skirball blaze forcing evacuations of thousands of residents in the exclusive enclave.

Firefighters battled to save multimillion-dollar homes in the path of the flames, which also forced the closure of the San Diego (405) Freeway in both directions. On its website the Getty Center said it would be closed "to protect the collections from smoke from fires in the region".

The strong winds have prevented planes and helicopters operating as it is too risky to fly. That year, the Shekell fire in Ventura county charred 5,504 hectares and damaged or destroyed 18 structures.

Really, Mother Nature's going to decide when we have the ability to put it out.

The largest of the fires is in Ventura County, covering 101 square miles.

Mr Butler said four homes had been destroyed and 11 damaged since the blaze erupted before dawn on Wednesday in an area that includes many hilltop mansions.

More than 1,000 firefighters are trying to battle the blaze but can not enter the area due to the intensity of the fire, county officials said.

The Skirball Fire in the area south of scenic Mulholland Drive and north of Sunset Boulevard is just one of several major out-of-control brush fires that have sprung up in Southern California since Monday, when Santa Ana wind conditions set in.

He said: This fire is very unsafe and spreading rapidly.

Donald Trump took to Twitter on Wednesday afternoon to offer "thoughts and prayers" to everyone affected by the wildfires.

"THANK YOU to all First Responders for your incredible work".

A total of 44 people were killed, some 106,000 people were evacuated and 110,720 acres were devastated by the fires.
