Celebrity homes, "Westworld" set, destroyed by Southern California wildfire

LOS ANGELES The fast-moving Woolsey Fire ravaging Southern California has scorched the homes of some celebrities and a historic movie site recently used by the HBO series "Westworld." The wildfire forced celebrities to join thousands of others who have fled flames that have claimed homes and forced an evacuation of Malibu.

Kim Kardashian West, Scott Baio, Rainn Wilson and Guillermo del Toro are among those who have evacuated their homes. Some, like del Toro and Caitlyn Jenner, did not know the fate of their homes, but the wind-driven wildfire has destroyed the home of "Dr. Strange" director Scott Derrickson.

The blaze started Thursday night. By Friday, it had pushed toward Malibu and the Pacific Ocean, prompting evacuations in Malibu, Calabasas, Agoura Hills and other nearby areas.

"Westworld" set at Paramount Western Town ranch

The Woolsey Fire reached the ranch that has been the set of numerous movies over the years. The 2,700-acre ranch located between Malibu and the Conejo Valley was purchased by Paramount Sudios in 1927.

Western Town specifically was built for TV productions in the 1950s and was used for TV series including "The Cisco Kid" and "Dick Powell's Zane Grey Theatre." Filming continued for decades even as the ranch changed hands. It was acquired by the National Park Service in 1980 but has continued to function as a filming location, serving as a location for the first two seasons of the sci-fi series "Westworld."

2. A fire close by this one destroyed the set for MASH just after the last show was taped.

 

That was near Topanga Canyon a few miles down the Coast Highway from Malibu.
