LAGRO - Dillon’s Bar will be rebuilt after all, according to owner Marcella Dillon.
On Jan. 10, the bar had just reopened following a brief hiatus only to catch fire the following morning at 3:30 a.m.
At the time, Dillon told The Paper of Wabash County that she wouldn’t rebuild since it was the second fire the bar had seen since she took over the business.
“It was really devastating after going through two fires and it really takes a toll on you,” Dillon said in a follow-up interview on June 26. “So, in the beginning, we said we just can’t do this again, but as time has passed, nerves have kind of settled and we thought, ‘You know, it would be nice to have a new bar for this community.’”
