When not in use for filming, visitors could stroll through Western Town while hiking or riding through on horseback.
"We are sorry to share the news that the #WoolseyFire has burned Western Town at #ParamountRanch in Agoura", wrote the account in a post that included a picture of the ranch before the fire.
A historic filming location for movies and television shows set in the Old West has burned down from the Woolsey wildfire now raging in California. 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 blaze started Thursday night and by Friday had pushed toward Malibu and the Pacific Ocean, prompting evacuations in Malibu, Calabasas, Agoura Hills and other nearby areas.
In the early days of movies, film studios purchased big plots of land that could be used to stand in for the landscapes of different states or countries.
Thankfully, HBO confirms that no filming for the upcoming season of Westworld was taking place at the time of the fire.
The main sets for the HBO series, including the central town of Sweetwater featuring the Mariposa Saloon and the train stop, have not been affected, as those are located Melody Ranch in Santa Clarita. The property, now part of the National Park Service, was the set for a number of Hollywood productions, including The Lake House and Caught in the Draft, as well as TV shows such as Weeds, The Mentalist, and Quickdraw. It was also used as the setting for the television show "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman" from 1992 to 1997. "Be safe everyone and save the animals".
Approximately 75,000 homes were under evacuation orders in Ventura and Los Angeles counties, officials said in a Friday morning news release.
