THE BRONX - Several Bronx businesses are waiting to reopen following a fire on East Gun Hill Road.

Four shops next to Samba Lounge have had their gas and electric turned off since flames destroyed the restaurant and nightclub last Friday. The stores include T-Mobile, Rio Nilo Record II, SMJ Beauty Salon and Tax Association.

There is no word yet on when the gas and electric will be restored.
