Paramount Ranch Fire

Paramount Ranch Fire

A wildfire in California has claimed, among other locations, a series of iconic movie and TV sets outside of Los Angeles.

The set of HBO's Westworld has burned down in flames in the midst of the SoCal wildfire tearing through the homes and towns of California this week.

The Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area announced that the western town portion of Paramount Ranch in Agoura Hills, California has burned down.

The destruction of the ranch was confirmed by the Twitter account for the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area on Twitter. It's unclear whether Westworld was planning to shoot at Paramount Ranch for season three, as the season two finale took the show in a much different direction.

Aaron Paul talked to ET not too long ago, revealing that the upcoming season would not start its shooting before March or even April!
