The Skirball Fire in LA Is Burning Down Rupert Murdoch's House

The Skirball Fire in LA Is Burning Down Rupert Murdoch's House

In October, more than a dozen fires blazed through the northern part of the state, burning thousands of acres along the way. No major institution so far has said it has incurred damage, but, as of midday, more than 150 buildings and homes have been destroyed in the Bel-Air neighborhood of Los Angeles, and almost 12,000 more buildings are potentially threatened by four fires threatening various areas of Los Angeles and Ventura counties.

This is a developing story. Fire crews were hard at work trying to contain the blaze, but they were fighting a fire fueled 25 miles per hour winds.

No injuries had been reported. Homes in the area were being evacuated, including those on Bundy Canyon Road and Mandeville Canyon Road.

Yet another wildfire broke out in Southern California this week, this one along the 405 Freeway.

As the fire burns northeast of the Getty Center and east of the 405 (San Diego) Freeway, the museum and other Center facilities are closed to the public.

The Ventura County Sheriff's Office first received reports of the fire at 6:24 p.m and by midnight the fire had already engulfed 10,000 acres. 220 Firefighters on scene.

"We don't have a good feel on which direction this fire is heading", Stewart said. Residents living west of the 405 should brace for evacuations as well in the event the flames cross the freeway.

Another fire, dubbed the Creek Fire, raged near Sylmar and Kagel Canyon.

Their luxury home in Bel-Air, which they had just put on the market three days ago, was "in the middle of it all", he said.

The strong, desiccating Santa Ana winds have created ideal conditions for wildfires, by compressing hot air in the L.A. basin, and prompting the spread of embers well ahead of any fires that crop up. It remained unclear at the time what caused each wildfire.
