The Global drama “S.W.A.T.” has been forced to postpone production due to the dangerous California wildfires.
The staff writers for the hit series confirmed on Twitter that all cast and crew members have been sent home: “Production of @swatcbs has been suspended for the day due to wildfires and unsafe air near our stages. Safety of cast and crew come first. Prayers to all affected by these fires.”

Star Stephanie Sigman retweeted the writer’s tweet and added, “Everybody stay safe.”
The crime drama, filmed in Santa Clarita, is right in the middle of “The Rye Fire”. The 200-acre brush fire closed the freeway in both directions along with “S.W.A.T.”‘s stages.

California media has reported the fire has spread and is now threatening a power station and a nearby shopping centre among other structures in the area.
HBO’s mega-hit “Westworld” has also been forced to pause production of the sci-fi drama’s second season.
“Due to nearby wildfires, ‘Westworld’ stopped production earlier today and will resume filming as soon as it’s safe to do so,” said the network in a statement on Tuesday.
“S.W.A.T.” airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Global.
