Three Fires, One Week - Possible Serial Arsonist

I just wanted the UER family to be aware (sad news ahead):

Three of our favorite abandoned spots out in East Tennessee have been set on fire within a week or so. The first was the first was the TMI, next was a building at Knox College, and then the last was Currier Elementary.
I'm not sure how much damage was done to Meiji Gakuin, though it was already pretty rough. I can't find an article but there's plenty of pictures floating around. Knox College is fine (as usual), but Currier is completely gone.

I really hope they catch whoever's doing this. It's heartbreaking to see these places go.

Yikes, that's unfortunate. I think arson is a special kind of evil when it comes to damaging locations because not only are they harming the building itself, they're putting the lives of firefighters and neighbors in danger to get their kicks.




Indiana Jones wasn't an archaeologist, he was an urban explorer. Archaeologists do a lot less running and a lot more paperwork.

I know! There are people that live very close to TMI and Currier Elementary has close neighbors and is directly in the woods... If you want to set something on fire, don't do it next to sleeping families.

Fire's a beautiful thing
- and easily addictive.
