Owners of Casale DiMaggio Sicilian Restaurant will rebuild their restaurant after it was ravaged by a fire on Oct. 20. The fire started at the Bucks County restaurant, located at 1167 Dublin Pike in Perkasie, after closing time at 9 p.m. NBC Philadelphia reported that firefighters arrived on the scene at 11 pm. to find flames spewing from the roof. Local firefighters were joined by other departments from upper Bucks County to fight the fire, which they were able to bring under control after about an hour. Thankfully, no one was hurt in the blaze though the restaurant was left with significant damage.
“On Wednesday night, we experienced a nightmare become a reality, we’ve witnessed the many memories and relationships we built with our community flash before our eyes,” part of an Oct. 22 Facebook post on the restaurant’s website read. “We are planning to rebuild and remain a part of this community.”
The cause of the fire is under investigation. A GoFundMe page was set up for the family and has so far reached $1,380 of its $1,500 goal. The restaurant is currently closed, and there is no word on when they will reopen, though the GoFundMe page mentioned that it “will take time to rebuild.”
“Although it has been extremely difficult for us to grasp this reality, we are faithful. We are grateful for the love and support our community has been giving us during this tragedy. It has been truly overwhelming to see how many families are praying for us and offering any help they can give,” the Facebook post read. “We also would like the thank the first responders for their efforts and dedication to keep our community safe. Thank you all for love and support. God bless from our family to yours.”
