Virgil Aiello said today DeLuca's on Charles Street could be back in the wine business within a month after receiving Inspectional Services approval - which his lawyer said could be any day now.

Aiello and attorney Terry Dangel told the Boston Licensing Board that renovations to the market - destroyed in a four-alarm fire in July, 2010 - are proceeding apace, even as Aiello continues lawsuits against Nstar for the basement short circuit blamed for the fire.

Both the Boston Globe and Boston Herald are reporting that an electrical short circuit spark was the cause of the July 8th basement fire at DeLuca's Market on Beacon Hill.

“It is known that there was an electrical problem earlier that morning that resulted in an electrician being called and then doing work in the basement,” Boston Fire Department spokesman Steve MacDonald said.
