Fire at Crafter's Village Peru, IL

Crafter's Village in Peru IL caught on fire Monday evening. The building and all contents are completely destroyed. Firefighters came from Peru, LaSalle, Ottawa and possibly other surrounding departments. The building is located across from the Peru Mall to the East and just south of the Jeff Perry Buick, GMC dealership on 37th street just off route 251. Video was taken around 8:00 PM. Power was out and most likely shut off to the surrounding businesses.

Would any one know if they will be rebuilding? My Mom & Sister would go there on our vacation. We are from Merrionette Park. What a cool place.

My daughter and I were saddened to learn of your loss. We traveled all the way from the Joliet area. We hope you will rebuild better than ever!
