LOVES PARK, Ill. (WIFR) -- Exactly one month after a fire destroys a Loves Park car dealership, the owner says he is taking another step to rebuild.

Kar Korner was destroyed in a fire on July 1, leaving only burned debris and melted car keys behind.

On Tuesday, demolition crews moved in tearing down the old building as the dealership prepares to rebuild. Owner Mark Numbers says he is thankful for his customers who have stayed with him through this past month.

"Customers every day have been I don't know how to describe their care and concerns and thinking about us and making sure were okay usually the dealership should be more concerned about the customer but the customer's been more concerned about us," says Numbers.

Numbers says he isn't sure when construction will begin on a new permanent office.
