We just returned from a long weekend in Seaside Heights/Park. Great weather! Glad to see so much back up and running almost a year after Sandy. Still much work being done. A great job by all to prove that NJ is Stronger than the Storm!

If anyone has any questions feel free to contact me.

The south end of the boardwalk is engulfed in flames. It's a 6 alarm fire. They are having a very hard time containing it.

I'm watching the news with tears in my eyes. At least 19 businesses are lost and it looks like more will follow. God help my friends in Seaside!!!!!!!!!

just talked to my friend who has a business, (thankfully 1/2 block South of the fire) it was out of control by 4:30 edt. Was just there last week, the place we had lunch is gone. Maruca's is gone. Bubba's is gone. all of the "old' boardwalk just went up in flames. Funtown pier had barely been touched so there wasn't much lost on the pier that was left. but many businesses are gone. understand, most of the sand under the boardwalk is gone so there is oxygen above and below to feed the fire. They are setting up a "firebreak' at Lincoln Ave. ripping out 20 ft wide swath of new boardwalk. basically six blocks are on fire. so sad

I'll have to assume our favorite bar (the beachcomber) will be lost also. Very sad thinking about the antique carousel being demolished. So many memories from my youth, up in flames.
