THE BRONX - Several Burnside Avenue business owners are getting help from the Small Business Administration after a huge fire destroyed their stores last weekend.

The fire broke out on Sunday and destroyed six businesses.

The Small Business Administration and Councilman Fernando Cabrera held a fire recovery meeting Friday to link the damaged businesses with city agencies that can help get their doors back open as soon as possible.

One of the main tools given at the meeting was how to properly file with insurance companies, so they can get the maximum amount of help.
