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.

Multimillion-dollar mansions were set ablaze as more than 1,000 firefighters attempted in vain to contain an increasing number of fires igniting across southern California.

California Fire had issued a Red Flag Warning that conditions could lead to an increased fire risk, from "critical weather and dry conditions".

Murdoch acquired the Moraga vineyard in 2013.

No other wine producers have reported damage from the current fires, although many buildings in the area are now under threat from fire damage. "We believe the winery and house are still intact".

"We are monitoring the situation as closely as we can and are grateful for the efforts of all the first responders", Moraga estate posted to its Twitter account.

Deputy Fire Chief Charles Butler said firefighters and aircraft stopped the growth of the 475-acre blaze in the Bel Air neighbourhood.

In addition to Murdoch's home, other high-profile celebrities living in the affected area include Gwyneth Paltrow, Scrubs showrunner Bill Lawrence, Ari Emanuel, Dr. Dre, and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Lopez bought a $28 million estate in Bel Air previous year while Aniston owns a $20 million property in the neighborhood, the Hollywood Reporter said.

The grapes for this vintage will have been harvested, but there could still be some damage to the vines themselves.
