The Woolsey Fire has claimed at least three lives and more than 500 homes in South­ern Cal­i­for­nia and de­stroyed a num­ber of iconic Hol­ly­wood lo­ca­tions. The his­toric Western Town area at Para­mount Ranch in Agoura Hills, where pro­duc­tions such as “West­world” and “Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman” have shot, burned on Nov. 9. Other lo­cal land­marks rav­aged in the fire in­clude Agoura Hills’ Mor­ri­son Ranch House, fea­tured in “Of Mice and Men,” as well as a replica of the set from “MASH” in Mal­ibu Creek State Park. The Rea­gan Ranch and Peter Strauss Ranch also burned. With so many sto­ried gems turned to dust, there was a piece of heart­en­ing news: Bleak House, direc­tor Guillermo del Toro’s per­sonal house of hor­rors in Thou­sand Oaks, which con­tained his col­lec­tion of genre movie props, and which had to be evac­u­ated, man­aged to sur­vive the blaze. An­other sur­vivor: the Thelma Todd Beach House in Mal­ibu, lo­cated in an area that was not af­fected.
