Take these three recent examples: The McConnell Hotel in downtown Kellogg, Idaho burned to a shell on Aug. 30, 2017. That same day a fire ravaged the Sheraton Hotel in Universal City in Los Angeles gravely injuring a worker and firefighter. Then on Sept. 1, a fire, caused by a burning vehicle, burned the exterior of the Country Inn and Suites, 665 Tecumseh St. in Monroe Michigan.
