The wildfire devastating the Los Angeles area is threatening a $30m ranch owned by Rupert Murdoch.

On Moraga Drive on Wednesday, gray smoke surrounded Murdoch's property, but the compound burned.

Murdoch's 16-acre Morgana Vineyards estate in the ritzy region is reportedly under extreme threat from the blaze.

The $30 million estate owned by the 21st Century Fox mogul is just on the other side of the 405 freeway, which was also closed in both directions Wednesday morning.

She said firefighters stepped in to douse the flames with the aid of helicopters and that other storage sheds, the winery itself and the estate's unoccupied house are not damaged.

Giffords retweeted these posts, adding that those good wishes won't get the job done when it comes to stopping gun violence. He and other Republicans compared the concealed-carry permit to a driver's license that is valid in any state.

Rupert Murdoch's $30 million vineyard, the Moraga Estate, is also being threatened by the Skirball fire, according to NBC News. The main residence is 7,724 square foot and the property includes a two bedroom guest house and a 4,400 square-foot office building.

The Skirball Fire alone has already burned more than 150 acres, with winds gusting to more than 50 miles per hour.

Los Angeles is being scorched at the moment thanks to some fairly unprecedented wildfires that are now overrunning some of the wealthier, more-celebrity filled areas of the city, forcing mass evacuations.

"I encourage everyone to heed the advice and orders of local and state officials", Trump wrote on Twitter.

Although no casualties have been reported, the fires have forced mass evacuations, cancellation of classes at dozens of schools and resulted in the loss of power at more than 250,000 homes in Ventura County.
