Fire destroys Franklin County business

FRANKLIN COUNTY, IL (KFVS) -

A Franklin County business owner is left in shock after his shop goes up in flames.

The Village Auction House, just south of Royalton, caught fire overnight and destroyed much of the building.

The owner, Robert Enrico says he's had the property a handful of years. Enrico says he got word about the fire from a family member.      

"(She) said this place was on fire," Enrico said. "I said well that's par, I just had a funeral for my younger brother, now this happens."

Enrico says this building used to be a grocery, and more recently used it for auctions.  Late Tuesday morning Enrico was not sure if he would rebuild, but added he did have insurance.
