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.

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
