Westworld set burns down in California wildfires

‘Westworld’ Location at Paramount Ranch Burns Down

‘Westworld’ Location at Paramount Ranch Burns Down

Partly set in Western-themed park wherein tourists live out their fantasies or darkest desires, Westworld has filmed the Main Street scenes at the historic Western town area at Paramount Ranch.

Paramount Ranch, which served as a filming location for almost 500 films and television shows over the years, is the latest casualty of the wildfires that are now sweeping across California.

The HBO series is also shot at the Melody Ranch in Santa Clarita, Utah and other locations. "We do not have any details or photos, but it is our understanding that the structures have burned". This area's an active part of the whole incident and we can't access it'.

The National Park Service that oversees the famed Paramount Ranch said Friday that the Western Town portion of the facility has burned down.

Film shoots included The Love Bug, Norbit, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, The Lake House, and American Sniper. From 1992 to 1997, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman was filmed at the location.

A fast-moving wildfire in Southern California has scorched a historic movie site recently used by the HBO series "Westworld" and forced numerous celebrities to join the thousands fleeing flames that have claimed homes and prompted the total evacuation of the celebrity enclave Malibu.

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

The fire ruined buildings at Paramount Ranch, one of the locations used during seasons 1 and 2 of Westworld. The network said that the show, which has been renewed for a third season, wasn't in production and that it doesn't yet know the extent of the damage, according to the news agency.

Westworld is not the only series to be impacted by the Woolsey fire, which has grown to over 14,000 acres since it started yesterday.

The Woolsey Fire is burning in both Los Angeles and Ventura Counties, causing at least 75,000 homes to be evacuated. Most importantly, our thoughts go out to all those affected by these frightful fires.
