A raging brush fire in Yucca Valley, CA spilled into Pioneertown, the site of numerous Western movies dating back to the 1930s. Since the effective demise of the Western in recent years, the site has been used for filming music videos and TV commercials. Firefighters said that the blaze destroyed several structures but were unable to say whether they included any of those that were used in filming. Temperatures were hovering near the 100-degree mark today (Wednesday) as efforts to control the fire continued.
