The fire devastating California's Bel Air community is also roaring through the vineyard of media mogul and Realtor.com owner Rupert Murdoch.

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

The 90,000-acre fire burning in Ventura County, northwest of Los Angeles, has swept through ridges and canyons to the sea and Santa Ana winds that drove it are expected to return with a vengeance overnight.

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

Murdoch, the billionaire who controls 21st Century Fox Inc, said wildfires appear to have damaged some structures on the Moraga Estate vineyard where he lives.

Murdoch's property at 1050 Moraga Ave. was bought in August 2013 for $US28.8 million ($A40.3 million). 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 broke out early Wednesday morning and has already stretched more than 100 acres.

On Wednesday firefighters managed to stop the spread of a wildfire that has destroyed homes near the world-famous Getty museum in Los Angeles.

No casualties have yet been reported but thousands of homes are threatened by the fires, including in the luxury Bel Air area. Jerry Brown has declared a state of emergency. The fire is now being fought by hundreds of firefighters, Los Angeles Daily News reports, and at least four homes have already been destroyed.
