THE BRONX - The city's Buildings Department is assessing the structures of four Tremont stores engulfed in a three-alarm fire.
More than 130 firefighters battled the massive blaze Sunday, which started at Fino's Menswear and Shoes on East Burnside Avenue and caused a section of the building's roof to collapse.
The flames quickly spread to a discount shop, a cellphone store and La Marketa Meats. Dozens of people are now out of work as business owners begin the long process of rebuilding their livelihoods.
