Massive fire erupts on Seaside Park, NJ boardwalk

SEASIDE PARK, N.J. - September 12, 2013 (WPVI) -- Firefighters are battling a massive fire on the Seaside Park boardwalk.

The fire was reported around 2:30 p.m. Thursday in the 1800 block of the boardwalk.

The fire has since grown and has engulfed a number of buildings. Images from Chopper 6 HD showed entire blocks up in flames.

The fire has also reportedly spread to the Funtown Pier.

There was no immediate word on how this fire started.

Seaside Heights Police Chief Thomas Boyd says several firefighters and residents were being treated at the scene for smoke inhalation. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Kohr's is located on a boardwalk that was rebuilt following extensive damage from Sandy.

Seaside Park is where a roller coaster that was pushed into the ocean during Sandy became an enduring image of the storm.

Shit's on fire

A raging fire inside an ice cream store in Seaside Park has spread to 19 other buildings along the popular boardwalk on the Jersey Shore, and evacuations are being ordered in nearby businesses, authorities said.

The blaze, which began at Kohr's Ice Cream near the boardwalk, was swept up by a strong southeast wind and jumped to adjacent structures around 2:30 p.m., according to Seaside Heights Police Chief Thomas Boyd.

Firefighters have been battling the blaze as black smoke continues to pour out of the popular dessert shop and other structures, as seen in a video posted by the Jersey Shore Hurricane News on Facebook.

As of 4:30 p.m., firefighters were ordered to pull back because of the intensity of the flames, officials told The Star-Ledger.

Several firefighters and residents were being treated at the scene for smoke inhalation, according to Boyd, who did not know what caused the fire.

The boardwalk underwent major repairs earlier this year after Hurricane Sandy destroyed most of it. Funtown Pier, adjacent to the burning boardwalk, was decimated by the storm.

As of 3:50 p.m., the blaze was spreading to additional buildings, and some evacuations were in progress near the fire scene.

Officials with the Toms River Police Department, Ocean County Sheriff's Office, Seaside Heights Police and Seaside Park Fire Department are all on the scene, according to Toms River Police Chief Michael Mastronardy.

Boyd said he couldn't comment further on the fire, citing the severity of the blaze.

"We've got everyone in the county coming," he said. "We're in trouble here. We've got major problems."

A strong southeast wind was pushing the fire north, so officials are now evacuating businesses — pizza shops, bars and stores — to the north.

Jamie Sundermann walked through the thick black smoke with an armful of sports jerseys he was removing from his brother’s shop, Big Hearted John’s, a summer sundries business about six blocks from the blaze.

“It just kept getting worse and worse and worse,” Sundermann said about the fire.

As he loaded items into his white SUV, a police officer wearing a face mask walked south toward the fire.

“That’s really scary when you see that,“ Sundermann said.

Star-Ledger staff writers MaryAnn Spoto, Bobby Olivier and Peggy McGlone contributed to this report.

A lackluster season and a little Jew lightning make the Jersey Shore the place to be.

I'm over in Point Pleasant and you can see the smoke from here. All the fire departments emptied out to go help. That town is a mess.

Yea, this just drips jewish lightning.
It is a section that was just rebuilt, mostly with insurance money due to hurricane damage. This drips of an accidental fire that got out of control.

So do you think the old building or the newly constructed one was covered for more?
Yeah, have your building destroyed, rebuild it, pay a higher deductible, burn it down, pay an even higher deductible. Makes perfect sense.

I worked up there as a teen. All those business owners are fucking grifters. After this lousy season no one should be surprised.
