The vacant Addison Motel located Addison, Illinois sat abandoned for years, but last night at 3:30am it caught fire and burned for hours. Always a sad day to lose a location.

Link to video of fire:

That's crazy. On Sunday may friend and I were discussing it and thinking about going back soon. Guess that won't be happening, but I'm glad we were able to check it out.

I'd like to see the damage and aftermath of the fire. Looks pretty bad from the video. I hope they catch whoever did this.

That's a shame, sorry to hear you lost what sounds like a good location

Arson seems to be a really popular pastime in the rustbelt.. Saginaw and Detroit are both famous for their extravagant Devil's Night festivities..

Hearing rumors that a name has been given to the police of someone who was in the location an hour before the fire started.

I heard that too through Instagram. I'm wondering what happened that night, was there two people in there but they weren't together?

I was there maybe 2 or 3 weeks prior to it burning down. We didn't stay long because It smelled like gas in the building. Although even if didn't burn down, it wasn't a place that would be safe to explore much longer. The ceiling was falling in, in a few places.
