UPDATED with Evan Rachel Wood reaction: The National Park Service that oversees the famed Paramount Ranch said Friday that the Western Town portion of the facility has burned down. It was immediately in the path of the fast-moving Woolsey Fire, which started yesterday and has increased to 14,000 acres and now threatens the city of Malibu which has been evacuated.

"We are sorry to share the news that the #WoolseyFire has burned Western Town at #ParamountRanch in Agoura," tweeted the official handle of the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation service. "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."

Local TV stations covering the fire have shown the location, which appears to be wiped out.

The site just south of the 101 Freeway in Agoura has been the location for famous film and TV shoots since Paramount Pictures leased the ranch in 1927. Most recently, it was used as a location for the first and second seasons of HBO's Westworld.
