Baku-APA. Two New Jersey beach towns devastated by Superstorm Sandy will once again need to rebuild, after a fast-moving fire reduced dozens of businesses along the towns' boardwalk to rubble, APA reports quoting Reuters.
About 100 firefighters remained on the scene on Friday, putting out remaining hot spots after containing a fire that started at a frozen custard stand in Seaside Park on Thursday and blazed out of control for hours, moving several blocks into neighboring Seaside Heights.
"It's piles of rubble, it's piles of just char and debris, caved-in buildings with no walls and no roofs," said Brian Gabriel, chief fire coordinator for Ocean County. "It just looks like a bomb went off."
Authorities said they did not yet know the cause of the fire and did not have an estimate of how many businesses had been damaged.
"I don't have a handle on it," Gabriel said. "It's a lot."
