Cabin at Tallio Hotsprings burns to the ground

The cabin has been used locally for years

Local first responders were on the scene of a remote fire last week at the Tallio Hotsprings, where a large blaze destroyed the wooden cabin that had stood at the site for years. They were notified by a local tourism operator who first spotted the fire.

The Tallio Hotsprings have long been a sacred site for local Nuxalk people, and are often visited by locals and tourists in the area. The cabin has been used in the past for overnight trips with Nuxalk youth and elders.

The Coastal Guardian Watchmen, Nuxalk Fire Department, Ministry of Forests and BC Parks all responded together to put out the fire. At present the cause of the fire is unknown.
