BRONX- A 4-alarm fire tore through a string of stores in Fordham last week, leaving merchants to pick up the pieces.

A 4-alarm fire destroyed a local laundromat and a pizza shop, as firefighters prevented the spread of fire to a locksmith shop and an apartment building next door. 

Officials say the fire broke out at just after 12:30 p.m., on Friday, March 22 at the Express Laundry, located at 2469 Webster Avenue, at East 189 Street. 

More than 100 firefighters were able to bring the blaze under control by 3 p.m., two firefighters suffered minor injuries.
