HBO's "Westworld" is set to resume production on its second season after shutting down operations on Monday due to concern over wildfire activity in the vicinity of the show's set.

The wildfire, named the Rye Fire, that affected the Westworld shoot began around 10 a.m. on Tuesday, flaring up just north of the San Fernando Valley. Battling the fires has been hindered by the strong Santa Ana winds.
