Oprah Winfrey's house may be in the line of fire.

Movers were reportedly busy Friday afternoon packing up the multimedia mogul's Montecito, Calif., mansion, which is just miles away from Santa Barbara, where wild fires have torched more than 2,800 acres in the last three days.

More than 30,000 people have been forced to flee their homes. As of this morning, Montecito residents had not been ordered to evacuate, but were on high alert.

"The fires are nearby, but her house is not within the mandatory evacuation area," a rep for Winfrey's Harpo production company confirmed to E! News. "We're continuing to monitor."

Sources told Us Weekly that Winfrey's staff is bundling up her belongings in preparation for an official evacuation.

And this isn't the first time Team Winfrey has been on high alert, just in case.

In November, Winfrey's home was one of thousands threatened by wildfires in the area, which also boasts expansive real estate belonging to Michael Douglas, Rob Lowe, Ellen DeGeneres, Jeff Bridges and Kevin Costner.
