Part of the Meadowood Napa Valley resort, including its three-Michelin-starred restaurant, was engulfed in flames as the Glass Fire tore through St Helena, California, on Monday, September 28, local media reported.
A chef with Restaurant at Meadowood said on Instagram that employees were “torn apart” by the loss of the restaurant.
While the restaurant was lost, the San Francisco Chronicle reported that “many” of the resort’s buildings were not destroyed.
Journalist Adam Housley posted this footage on Monday that shows flames consuming a building at the resort.
