Paramount Ranch Western Town, filming location for 'Westworld,' burns in Woolsey Fire

Paramount Ranch Fire

By all accounts, the flames have burned the whole area beyond recognition.

However, reporter Chris Woodyard posted a photo on Twitter on November 10, saying the main house was still standing, while the house next door had burned to the ground. "This area is an active part of the incident and we can not access it", the national recreation area said in the tweet.

The iconic set depicting a western American town was destroyed in one of the three large wildfires devastating California.

In a statement released via ET, HBO addressed the fire problem: 'Paramount Ranch was one of the locations that were used during seasons 1 and 2 of Westworld, in addition to the main location at Melody Ranch, Santa Clarita. HBO said it did not know the extent of the damage and expressed concern for "all those affected by these terrible fires". Most importantly, our thoughts go out to all those affected by these awful fires.

Because the central town of Sweetwater is filmed at Melody Ranch, locations such as the train platform and the Mariposa Saloon have not been affected. Malibu has been evacuated, and the Paramount Ranch, which is located in the nearby Santa Monica Mountains and is a national park that's open to the public, was also caught in the fire's path. Gunsmoke, The X-Files, The Dukes of Hazzard and Dr Quinn, Medicine Woman were shot there, as well as The Mentalist, Weeds and Hulu's Quickdraw, according the the park service.

The Woolsey Fire jumped the 101 Freeway in Agoura Hills early this morning and has made its way through the Santa Monicas to the Pacific Ocean. It also prompted numerous celebrities to join thousands of others who have fled flames that have claimed homes and forced an evacuation of Malibu.

Unfortunately, as a result of the Woolsey fire, the set has burned down at Paramount Ranch.

The Southern California wildfire forced the production team for Comedy Central's "Drunk History" to evacuate their filming location on November 9 at King Gillette Ranch, which was also used for the set of the show "The Biggest Loser".

Paramount Ranch was purchased by the titular studio in the late 1920s and served as foreign locales for directors and actors like Cecil B. Demille, Bob Hope, and Gary Cooper, according to the official website.
