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 Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
