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.

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".
