It’s thought to have been an electrical fire.

A GoFundMe campaign has been set up to help European Designs & Manufacturing recover following a fire on Chicago’s historic Jewelers Row.

The business in the Mallers Building at 5 S. Wabash Ave. caught fire at about 2 a.m. on April 25, according to the GoFundMe page set up by Mario Macias. It’s owned by Eva and Hubert Sawasciuk.

According to the page: “Eva and Hubert Sawasciuk are two of the nicest people within the jewelry industry. They have helped so many of us over the years, now it is time for us to help them. If you wear a fantastic piece of jewelry that was manufactured in Chicago, odds are good that European Design & Manufacturing helped in part of the manufacturing process. Let’s come together and help them recover from this fire.”

Fire officials believe the cause of the fire was electrical, the Chicago Tribune reports. Firefighters rescued two people, and two firefighters were injured battling the blaze, officials said.

Maximize Every Sale with Wilkerson

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
