THE BRONX - Tenants of a Shakespeare Avenue building were finally allowed to return home today after being displaced by a fire earlier this month.

Residents had been spread across several city shelters after the fire department put up a vacate order following the discovery of several building violations during the Dec. 4 fire.

The Department of Buildings gave the OK for tenants after it says the landlord paid to have the violations fixed.

Tenants say they're calling it a miracle to be allowed back home in time for Christmas. Displaced Morrisania residents fret about home for holidays Tenants not allowed to return to Shakespeare Ave. buildingEvacuated residents stuck in shelter
