The California Glass Fire has destroyed more than 350 commercial buildings and damaged nearly 50 more since it sparked on September 27. Among the devastation it's left behind, White Sulphur Springs — the state's very first resort, according to NBC Bay Area — is almost completely gone.
The resort was made up of a collection of 20 buildings in St. Helena — 17 of which were destroyed by the fire, according to NBC. Despite the near-complete destruction of the property, Raz Ingrasci from the Hoffman Institute, which now owns the property and uses it as a retreat center, told NBC that they plan to rebuild it.
The historic 1852 resort was just one of nearly 400 commercial properties that were damaged or destroyed by the fire.
The Restaurant at Meadowood, a 3-Michelin star restaurant in Napa Valley, was consumed by the fire on Monday morning. The eatery, also known as TRAM, plans to rebuild as well — two brick fireplaces and stone stairs at the entrance are all that remain standing after the fire, Insider previously reported.
"Napa Valley and California have seen their share of challenges and have always demonstrated a resiliency that others emulate," TRAM's head chef Christopher Kostow told Anneta Konstantinides for Insider. "The important thing right now is to protect lives and property, and address the bigger issue of climate change."
