    The oldest motel in the Escalante area is burning to the ground right now. Tons of smoke. No injuries as of now. Can't seem to find anything on its long history?

    Confirmed. The place was vacant. Mark Austin had been living there but was not there when it started. It had been closed to guests recently but was preparing to open for the spring season. Pics being sent to me. Will post when they get in.

    Wow, I had just stayed there in January. Upon reading Ram's post my first response was to search my memory to ensure that I'd turned off all electronics when I checked out. The owners were super nice people, hope that this isn't too terrible a hardship for them
