MIDDLETOWN (CBS SF) -- The ferocious Valley Fire reportedly torched the famed Harbin Hot Springs, a clothing-optional retreat center offering yoga and massage workshops in Middletown.
Harbin Hot Springs guests and residents were evacuated from the resort on Saturday. On its website last updated Sunday evening, Harbin says all reservations have been cancelled indefinitely and there have no specific reports of damage to the center.
On Monday morning, photographer Posterity Productions posted images on Facebook of what remained of the resort. Several photos show the smokey ruins of the hot and cold pools, the whimsical temple and some of the resort's rustic lodging.
Harbin suffered damage from a wildfire in the 1900s, which burned down at least one hotel.
