At the event, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy announced that U.S. Small Business Administration low-interest loans and various state programs are available to help victims of the massive Jan. 6 fire that destroyed much of a city block on Howe Avenue.

The fire displaced 29 people and eight businesses, and some of those impacted by the blaze were at the Saturday event.
