‘Westworld’ Set Burned Down By California Wildfire - Check Out The Pics!

Paramount Ranch Fire

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

The Agoura Hills set used to film the HBO series "Westworld" was destroyed Friday in the Woolsey Wildfire.

A spokesperson for HBO told The Wrap that Westworld has used the Paramount Ranch location for Main Street, but the Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy sci-fi series also films at Melody Ranch in Santa Clarita.

Westworld stars Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, James Marsden, Tessa Thompson, Fares Fares, Luke Hemsworth, Louis Herthum, Simon Quarterman, Talulah Riley, Rodrigo Santoro, Gustaf Skarsgård, Ed Harris, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Clifton Collins Jr., Angela Sarafyan, Katja Herbers, Shannon Woodward, Zahn McClarnon, and Anthony Hopkins as Robert Ford. HBO said it did not know extent of the damage and expressed concern for "all those affected by these frightful fires". So sad for the history lost.

While the show has taken quite a different direction in the season two finale and it is still unclear if they were planning to shoot there in season three, the set is still iconic, and it's a pity what happened!

Over the years, Western Town has served as a backdrop on TV shows including Zane Grey Theater, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, and, much more recently, Westworld; movies filmed at Paramount Ranch include The Cisco Kid, The Great Outdoors, The Love Bug, The Texan, and Sutter's Gold. "Amazed the church is still standing".

L.A. -based photojournalist John Schreiber also posted photos of the site on Twitter. 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.

Picnickers, hikers and tourists could stroll through Western Town for free before the fire. The National Park Service finally breathed new life into the location in '80, cementing it as a historic landmark for Western-based productions that was meant to stand the test of time.
