'Westworld' filming location burns down in Woolsey fire

- The iconic Paramount Ranch Western Town, which has been used as the filming location for countless movies and television shows over the years, burned Friday in the Woolsey Fire, according to Santa Monica Mountain officials.

"We are sorry to share the news that the #WoolseyFire has burned Western Town at #ParamountRanch in Agoura", the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation service tweeted Friday.

Officer Randy Law tends to a horse rescued as the Camp Fire burns in Paradise, Calif., on Friday, Nov. 9, 2018. This area's an active part of the whole incident and we can't access it'. Paramount was forced to sell in the early '50s, but businessman William Hertz, a fan of the Western genre, bought a portion of the land and kept up the Old West aesthetic by erecting a permanent town there, which obviously attracted film crews once more. It is also the home of the Topanga Banjo•Fiddle Contest & Folk Festival held annually every May. 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 Woolsey Fire is burning in both Los Angeles and Ventura Counties, causing at least 75,000 homes to be evacuated.

Activision: "Destiny Is Not Performing As Well As We'd Like"
Activision is intent on finding new ways to monetize the game, presumably in an effort to better its margin moving forward. Destiny 2 was released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in September past year , with a PC version arriving a month later.

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.

The sets, which have served as the home of projects like Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman, American Sniper, and The Love Bug, has most recently been used by the HBO series Westworld.

The fire ruined buildings at Paramount Ranch, one of the locations used during seasons 1 and 2 of Westworld. 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. Comedy Central's Drunk History has temporarily suspended production due to the fires, Derek Waters announced, stating that "love my job but I love my crew more. this ain't amusing. Be safe everyone and save the animals".

"The "Bachelor Mansion" is a private home in one of the current burn areas of Los Angeles", said the show producers in a statement obtained by Variety on November 9.
