Just got off the phone with Bombon Bakery owner Laura Perea, whose sweet shop suffered a horrible fire this morning in the Pilsen neighborhood.
The three-building fire sent several people, including one firefighter, to the hospital and left more than 30 residents homeless. Perea said the damage is really bad and she has "no clue" as to when BomBon Bakery will reopen.
"We're just glad that everyone's okay because that's what really matters," she said.
A second Bombon location is at 36 S. Ashland Ave., 312-733-8717.
