Paramount Ranch Fire Has Burned Westworld Sets to the Ground

‘Westworld’ Location at Paramount Ranch Burns Down 'Westworld' Set Burns Down in California Wildfire

It remains to be seen whether the sets will be rebuilt for future production or if the next season of Westworld will feature the town of Escalante.

Paramount Ranch was purchased by Paramount Pictures in 1927 and the old western town was to be used as a "movie ranch". Those sets can be found at the show's home base at Melody Ranch in Santa Clarita and have not been impacted by the fire. 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. "We do not have any details or photos, but it is our understanding that the structures have burned".

Paramount Ranch, an iconic set used in TV shows and films from Westworld to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, has burned in the devastating Woolsey Fire in western Los Angeles County.

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. "This area is an active part of the incident and we can not access it", the tweet read.

HBO used Paramount Ranch as one of the filming locations for seasons one and two of Westworld, along with Melody Ranch in Santa Clarita, Fox5 San Diego reported. 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.

Westworld was far from the only production to take advantage of the Old West-style buildings and setting for filming. HBO said it did not know the extent of the damage and expressed concern for "all those affected by these awful fires".

The Woolsey Fire is burning in both Los Angeles and Ventura Counties, causing at least 75,000 homes to be evacuated. The blaze also threatens the communities of Calabasas and Woodland Hills.
