Raging wildfires that broke out in southern California on Monday night have forced two television shows to halt filming due to safety fears.

Less terrible, but notable, is that the fires have caused production of CBS series S.W.A.T. and HBO's Westworld to shut down temporarily.

In Los Angeles County, The Creek Fire has grown to 11,000 acres, and the Rye Fire is burning about 1,000 acres, according to latest updates from fire officials.

"Due to nearby wildfires, Westworld stopped production earlier today and will resume filming as soon as its safe to do so", said A spokesperson of HBO in a statement, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

One of the writers for S.W.A.T. tweeted that the safety of the cast and crew are of utmost importance to them, which is why they made a decision to not push through with their shooting schedule.

A staff for the studio revealed that their Internet connection has been down due to the fire.

The Falcons actually reached the Vikings' 27-yard line midway through the fourth quarter but chose to try a field goal and missed. He leads the team with four touchdown catches and his 11 total touchdowns are tied with Todd Gurley for the most in the NFL .

The Rye Fire flared up near Newhall Ranch Road north of San Fernando Valley around 10 a.m. on Tuesday.

The fire has prompted the evacuation of at least 150,000 people, as strong winds and dry vegetation fuelled a blaze that has seen one million acres burn this year. "It's a very hard moment, but we will get through this", Garcetti said.

"Westworld" Season 2 is still filming for its premiere in spring 2018 on HBO.
