THE BRONX - Bronx store owners are beginning to rebuild their livelihoods following a devastating two-alarm fire. 

Flames ripped through several businesses on Burke Avenue Thursday afternoon, including the family owned 3 Boys from Italy Pizzeria, which has been a neighborhood staple for nearly 50 years. 

Owner Antonio Guadio has worked at the pizzeria since he was just 17 years old. He says the place is his home. 

While repairs have already begun, it's expected to take roughly six months to finish. 

Meanwhile, the cause of the fire remains under investigation.
