'Westworld' Set Burns Down in California Wildfire

‘Westworld’ Location at Paramount Ranch Burns Down

The Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area has confirmed that the Western town area at Paramount Ranch in Agoura Hills, California, where HBO's Westworld has filmed, burned down in the Woolsey fire.

When not in use for filming, visitors could stroll through Western Town while hiking or ride through on horseback. "We do not have any details or photos, but it is our understanding that the structures have burned".

Established by Paramount Pictures in 1927, the ranch hosted such productions as TV's Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman, Weeds, The Mentalist, Quickdraw and HBO's Great Depression-set mystery drama Carnivàle. In addition to Malibu, nearby Westlake Village is also under mandatory evacuation; multiple homes have burned already in Westlake Village and Oak Park.

The Woolsey Fire now burning in Los Angeles County has destroyed much of the Western Town, a key feature of Paramount Ranch.

In earlier times, television companies produced "The Cisco Kid" and "Dick Powell's Zane Grey Theater" at the town, according to the recreation area's website.
