Historic Paramount Ranch, Home To ‘Westworld’, ‘Dr. Quinn’, Destroyed In Woolsey Fire

‘Westworld’ Location at Paramount Ranch Burns Down

The iconic set depicting a western American town was destroyed in one of the three large wildfires devastating California. Now, the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area twitter account has announced that the town and its structures have burned down in the Woolsey Fire. According to the Malibu Times, they'd initially planned to use it as a dude ranch, but instead placed ads in the trades and changed tack when studios expressed interest in using it as a filming location. "We do not have any details or photos, but it is our understanding that the structures have burned", the park service explained.

California wildfires have burned down the historic Western Town at Paramount Ranch in Agoura Hills, destroying some of the sets used for HBO's Westworld. In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, the network said, "Westworld is not now in production, and as the area has been evacuated, we do not yet know the extent of the damage to any structures remaining there". Representatives for HBO told The Hollywood Reporter that they are now waiting to learn how bad the damage to the set is and to find out if any of its sets survived the fire.

The site just south of the 101 Freeway in Agoura has been the location for famous film and TV shoots since Paramount Pictures leased the ranch in 1927. It was also used as the setting for the television show "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman" from 1992 to 1997.

HBO added in a statement to ET: "Paramount Ranch was one of the locations used during seasons one and two of "Westworld", in addition to the primary location at Melody Ranch in Santa Clarita. Be safe everyone and save the animals".
