There are three job centers in the city, each of which works with more than 5,000 people a year, that can help the 71 employees find a new job or improve their skills, said David Bassett, program manager in Boston’s Office of Jobs and Community Services.

‘If they can show that their present set of skills is not marketable in this economy, which frankly is kind of easy to do these days, then they have an opportunity to pick from a variety of training programs,’ he said.

The programs include classes in nursing, computer skills and truck driving, he said.

Employees who seek the city’s help will hopefully be placed in a new job within 90 days, he said. The employees are also eligible for unemployment benefits including a weekly stipend and healthcare, he said.

‘Our hope is that we can find people jobs next week, but I think realistically within 90 days,’ Bassett said.

Private institutions are also attempting to help.

Carl Nagy Koechlin, executive director of the Fenway Community Development Center, said his organization aims to place people in jobs within their neighborhoods.

The ‘walk to work’ fills job openings in Northeastern and Brigham and Woman’s hospital, among other local businesses, with people from the Fenway, he said.

‘In addition, we’re also focused on how to reestablished these businesses that are so vital to the quality of life in the neighborhood,’ he said. ‘They really represent the vitality and the quirkiness that we love about the neighborhood.’

Joe Prestier, a server at Thornton’s and senior at Berklee College of Music, said he was looking for another job and hoped his savings can last until he finds one.

A friend called him at 3:30 a.m. the day of the fire while Prestier was visiting friends in Florida, he said.

‘I was shocked by the whole scenario,’ he said. ‘[Thornton’s] was more than just a means of income, it was very much a community and family. It doesn’t exist right now.’

Thornton’s bartender and server Brett Hughes, also a senior at Berklee, said he has applied at a few other bars and restaurants, including the bar he was in the night of the fire.

‘I was across the street at the bar Church, having a drink with another girl from work,’ he said. ‘About 20 minutes in, someone who knew I worked [at Thornton’s] grabbed me and said, ‘there’s a fire.”

When he ran outside, the building was on fire and the windows were broken, he said.

‘What amazed me is how long it burned for,’ he said. ‘It burned well until 10 a.m. the next day.’

Dee White, a long-time Fenway resident who said he went to the restaurants two or three times a week, said he found the loss of the businesses discouraging.

‘Thornton’s was like my Cheers,’ he said. ‘Everybody knew my name.’

White said he read about the fire in the news the following morning and went to the site to see what had happened.

‘The fact that they’re all independent businessmen who are part of the neighborhood is part of the loss,’ he said.

On campus, middler finance major Nora Drago said she had been to Thornton’s three or four times and will miss it.

‘Thornton’s had a really good Bailey’s and coffee drink that, with eggs, really made my morning,’ she said.

Some of her friends will also miss the block of restaurants, she said.

‘I have a couple friends who live on the Fenway, and they were really sad about losing El Pelon.’

This Saturday, Copperfield’s Bar, 96 Brookline Ave., will hold a 21+ fundraiser for those who lost their jobs in the fire, according to Menupages.com.
