NEVERTHRONERS! To your #got bunkers! This is going to be a rough one!
While human and home loss are the biggest concern in wildfires, there has been a significant loss to movie and TV history. The “Woolsey Fire” has claimed the standing Western Town set at Paramount Ranch.
We are sorry to share the news that the #WoolseyFire has burned Western Town at #ParamountRanch in Agoura. We do not have any details or photos, but it is our understanding that the structures have burned. This area is an active part of the incident and we cannot access it. pic.twitter.com/oC4n7KR8ZT

The set has featured in hundreds of productions including Gunsmoke, Westworld, Firefly, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman and many more.
Again, nothing is more important than saving lives, but this is a sad loss for Hollywood history.
