Suburban bridal salon destroyed in fire to set up temporary location

ELMHURST, Ill. -- A suburban bridal salon burned down, but its owners are promising to keep their commitments to their current brides.

The fire broke out at VIP Occasions at 351 N. York Road around 1 p.m. Thursday.

So far, no injuries have been reported. The cause of the fire is not yet known.

VIP Occasions, owned by two sisters, posted a statement on their Facebook page calling the fire "devastating."

The owners have announced plans to set up a temporary shop in a vacant building, which was their late father's medical center, two doors down from their original location. They say all affected customers will be cared for, and they will keep everyone up to date through the VIP Facebook page.

Meantime, a number of other bridal stores are offering to help by donating dresses, including Eva's Bridal in Oak Lawn -- that was also destroyed by a fire in 2010.

Complete Bridal located in East Dundee has offered to help brides who may have lost dresses in the fire. They are seeking dress donations from other brides. Anyone looking to donate can call them at 224-699-9242
