THE BRONX - The owners of five stores along Jerome Avenue that were ravaged by a four-alarm fire in April are calling on the city to complete its investigation so they can get back to business.

Business owners say they just want officials to complete their investigation so that they could begin the rebuilding process and remove the blight of the burnt-out storefronts.
