The wildfire ravishing pricey properties in Bel Air has claimed the home of former NBA player Andrei Kirilenko, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The Skirball fire destroyed Kirilenko’s 4,350-square-foot property on Linda Flora Drive, one of at least six in the wealthy enclave lost to the blaze. His former Brooklyn Nets teammate, Jason Collins, tweeted the news.

Kirilenko, current commissioner of the Russian Basketball Federation, purchased the home in 2015 for $5.5 million, records show. It included five bedrooms, five bathrooms, a guest house, gym and swimming pool.

A flurry of wildfires has been ripping through Los Angeles and Ventura counties this week. The Skirball fire, which first began in the early hours of Wednesday morning, also scorched the vineyard estate of media mogul Rupert Murdoch. President Trump declared the California fires — which have displaced thousands — a national emergency Friday morning. [LAT] — Natalie Hoberman
