Officials: 32 Businesses Burned Along NJ Boardwalk

Posted: Updated:

An official from the Jersey shore town where a raging boardwalk fire has been burning out of control says the blaze has taken out virtually all of the town's boardwalk businesses.

Seaside Park Councilwoman Nancy Koury tells The Associated Press the Thursday fire took out about 32 businesses. She says no serious injuries have been reported.

Koury says the fire began in a frozen custard stand on the Seaside Park section of the boardwalk, and quickly spread north into neighboring Seaside Heights.

Firefighters are still trying to get the raging fire under control as flames leap into the sky and thick plumes of smoke blanket the beachfront.

The fire burned much of the boardwalk that was just rebuilt in time for Memorial Day after being wrecked by Superstorm Sandy.
