An extra-alarm fire destroyed a popular Pilsen restaurant overnight. Nuevo Leon has been in the neighborhood for more than 50 years.

The group gathered at a holiday party Tuesday night. People across the city contributed by donating gifts and services.

Employees say they consider each other family, since most have worked together at the Pilsen restaurant their entire lives.

The owner says he's in the process of rebuilding.
