Westworld set burns down in California fire ahead of season 3

Western structures at Paramount Ranch in Agoura, Calif. was among the damage seen Friday from the Woolsey fire, which sparked Thursday night and so far has engulfed 10,000 acres and forced evacuations. According to the Los Angeles Public Library's website, the decades-old movie set is the only "working movie western town in the National Parks System".

The National Park Service says it has no details or photos but the structures that formed Old West facades are believed to have burned on Friday.

Paramount Ranch was used as the setting for the television show "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman" from 1992 to 1997, among many other productions.

As it stands, 75,000 homes have been evacuated as the blaze sweeps though Ventura and Los Angeles, with the mansion used to film The Bachelor also torched down.

The Woolsey Fire now burning in Los Angeles County has destroyed much of the Western Town, a key feature of Paramount Ranch. Paramount Pictures began leasing the ranch in 1927. New star Aaron Paul also recently told ET that they're not slated to start filming until March or April. Among the films that shot at the ranch were "Caught in the Draft" with Bob Hope, "The Lake House" with Sandra Bullock, and TV shows including "The Mentalist", "Weeds" and "Quickdraw".

The site has been home to multiple producations since the 1950s, when its Western Town was created for TV shows, such as "The Cisco Kid:".
