Vacant hotel burns in Franklin Park

August 11, 2011 8:32:57 AM PDT
A stubborn early morning fire kept firefighters busy for hours Thursday in suburban Franklin Park.

The fire started in the abandoned Super 8 motel around 2 a.m. Thursday morning.

Smoke from the fire forced people in a neighboring apartment building to leave their homes.

No one was hurt in this fire, but smoke drifted for miles over several neighboring suburbs.

No word yet on what caused the fire.
