A wildfire burned about 40 acres of Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch on Friday August 25th.

While is out there, somewhere in Bahrain, a wildfire burned about 40 acres of his Neverland Ranch on Friday August 25th, coming within a quarter-mile of the main residence, officials said.

There were about 100 firefighters battling the blaze along with water-dropping helicopters. Fortunately, no structures, including the merry-go-round, caught fire, Santa Barbara County Fire Department spokesman Jeff Ross confirmed.

Jacko has been living in the Middle Eastern kingdom of Bahrain since being acquitted of child molestation charges in California in June 2005. In March, he closed the main house at Neverland and laid off several of his employees.
