Christie promises help for Seaside Park, N.J., after fire
SEASIDE PARK, N.J. (AP) - Gov. Chris Christie is promising the full assistance of New Jersey in connection with a massive fire today that burned several blocks of boardwalk and businesses in a shore town that was still rebuilding from damage caused by Superstorm Sandy.
Four hours after the fire started today in the vicinity of an ice cream shop, flames were still leaping into the sky and thick black smoke covered a long stretch of the coastline. The fire spread into neighboring Seaside Heights, where the MTV reality series "Jersey Shore" was filmed.
Janet Meisner, a resident, said quote, "We had to deal with Sandy last year and now this happens. We can't catch a break." She spoke as she watched firefighters struggle to contain the flames, which jumped from building to building.
