'Westworld' Set Burns Down in California Wildfire

‘Westworld’ Location at Paramount Ranch Burns Down

"We do not have any details or photos, but it is our understanding that the structures have burned". Most recently, it was used as a location for the first and second seasons of HBO's Westworld.

Paramount Pictures purchased the 2,700-acre Agoura ranch in 1927 to use as a "movie ranch".

According to the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, the structures that make up Western Town at Paramount Ranch in Agoura have burned. "Sad for fans of [Westworld] and shows like Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, the Paramount Ranch western town movie set has burned to the ground in the Woolsey Fire", he wrote.

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

The blaze started Thursday night and by Friday had pushed toward Malibu and the Pacific Ocean, prompting evacuations in Malibu, Calabasas, Agoura Hills and other nearby areas.


The Woolsey fire, which started in Simi Valley near the Rocketdyne facility in the Santa Susana Pass, according to ABC 7, is currently affecting Los Angeles and Ventura counties and is now threatening Malibu.

Gaga also took to social media letting her followers know she evacuated Friday morning as she shared a few videos focused on the smoke-filled skies. The property, now part of the National Park Service, was the set for a number of Hollywood productions, including The Lake House and Caught in the Draft, as well as TV shows such as Weeds, The Mentalist, and Quickdraw. Ownership of the ranch has changed hands multiple times over the decades since.

The main sets for the HBO series, including the central town of Sweetwater featuring the Mariposa Saloon and the train stop, have not been affected, as those are located Melody Ranch in Santa Clarita. Most importantly, our thoughts go out to all of those affected by these awful fires'.

Actor James Wood asked almost two million of his Twitter followers to use the hashtag #CampFireJamesWoods to help share names of those who are missing in a separate wildfire in Northern California that has claimed five lives.
