Mantoloking Bridge Considered 'Unstable;' Fires Raging Nearby

Emergency crews will access barrier island neighborhoods from the south

Two days after Hurricane Sandy hit the area, fires still rage in Camp Osborn.

Emergency services were on the ground as of this morning, according to Brick Police Sgt. Keith Reinhard.

"We have people on the ground, but they had to go in by foot," he said. "We will have a larger contingency coming from the south, the Toms River area."

The Mantoloking Bridge was damaged during Sandy and during a prelimenary inspection, county officials have deemed the bridge unstable, ploice said.

"We have focused our efforts on the mainland, doing search and rescue in low lying areas," Reinhard said. "Now our focus is going to be on the barrier island, as well as removing trees and power lines from the roads."

State EMS and the National Guard, who should be arriving in the area today, are on hand to assist in search and rescue efforts on the barrier island.

"We are very fortunate to have these resources on hand to help," he said.

Please, someone, if you know any Brick cops, please ask them to go and direct traffic at the corner of burnt tavern rd and burrsville/lanes mill road? No lights, and this i/s is a total death trap. Thank you!

My husbands grandmother lost her house it was directly on the beach. My father in-law remembers planting trees around the house to protect it from the storm surge when he was a child and the only thing left standing today are those trees.
