The mansion where the Bachelor TV series are filmed has reportedly been hit by the Woolsey fire currently raging in southern California.
According to Variety, the lower house on the property has been destroyed, with flames creeping up the back patio and continuing toward the main house. Both Mike Fleiss, the series creator, and ABC’s head of reality programming, Rob Mills shared the news on social media.
In a Twitter post, they posted a picture of the looming smoke from the fire, and wrote: “Thinking of the people of Malibu and yes #TheBachelor Mansion is in grave danger as well.”
The series is filmed at the beautiful mansion twice a year, but is not currently being filmed at the location. When the series is not filming at the location, the mansion is home to the Haraden family.
The mansion, which is located in the Agoura Hills area of Los Angeles County, is one of several communities currently affected by the many raging wildfires across California. Paramount Ranch in Agoura Hills, a well-known filming location which has been used by shows like Westworld and Weeds, was destroyed by the fire earlier on Friday.
