Eleven more houses had been damaged. The estate is located near the 405 freeway, which authorities have closed.

The dramatic Skirball fire, which erupted in Los Angeles early Wednesday, may have reached Rupert Murdoch's Bel-Air estate and has threatened other multimillion estates in nearby neighborhoods whose star residents include Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Aniston and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Murdoch's Moraga Bel Air winery issued a statement on Twitter Wednesday saying, "We are watching the situation unfold very carefully along with everyone else".

Murdoch acquired the 13-acre property in 2013 for $28.8 million, according to Forbes. Murdoch and wife Jerry Hall occupy a 7,500-square-foot house on the property.
