As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by USATODAY.COM:
A fundraising campaign was launched Friday to rebuild the Western Town film set at Paramount Ranch where decades of Hollywood history were destroyed by the Woolsey Fire.
The film set south of Agoura Hills in Los Angeles County is in the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, which is part of the National Park Service. The set consisted of a series of buildings, but only the train station and a church built for HBO’s “Westworld” remained standing after the flames tore through.
The article goes on to state the following:
At a news conference Friday on the scorched set, Sara Horner, board president of the nonprofit Santa Monica Mountains Fund, said it’s time for Hollywood to give back and show some financial support.
She announced the creation of “The Paramount Project,” as the nonprofit has nicknamed it, that is aimed at restoring a piece of the film industry’s culture and the natural beauty that surrounds it.

In the grand scheme of things no lives lost and it’s not nearly the same as loosing a home in any way! But still very sad to see. As a local and a fan of #westerns I have some good memories of #ParamountRanch pic.twitter.com/c9JuXDyqZA

I freaking love this show. But isn’t kind of ironic that the only thing left standing on Westworld’s set is the church? I mean this is an episode in itself. #Westworld #WoolseyFire #ParamountRanch pic.twitter.com/KL8DckMsAw

Just heard news that the #WoolseyFire has burned Western Town at #ParamountRanch in Agoura. It was 4 years ago that I had moved to L.A. & was out exploring by cycling at the Ranch! I know it will be rebuilt but more importantly I hope everyone remains safe & fire controlled soon. pic.twitter.com/LMfqxSXvIg

A Church is a Church! Even if it’s used as a prop on a TV/Movie set it’s still a Church!
God allow things to happen to get our attention, notice how every building burned down on the tv set except the “Church” wow.
