Paramount production set destroyed by a wildfire in Northern California

Paramount Ranch Fire

The old west town at Paramount Ranch in Agoura Hills has reportedly been destroyed by fire, according to a tweet from the Santa Monica Mountains Recreation Area.

What the fire means for Westworld's third season remains unclear, but Aaron Paul - who will be joining the cast when it returns in 2020 - confirmed earlier this week that filming is expected to commence in April 2019. Westworld season 3 has not yet started production. Apparently, the set used as Westworld's Sweetwater has been destroyed by the wildfire in California! By all accounts, the flames have burned the whole area beyond recognition.

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. Sadly, all of that vibrant Hollywood history has been burned to ash by the wildfire.

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. "Amazed the church is still standing". This area's an active part of the whole incident and we can't access it'.

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