AFTERMATH: Fire Crews Still Hard At Work

Written by Colleen Platt

Seven and a half hours after the blaze first started on the Seaside Park boardwalk, at the Funtown Park and Arcade, crews continued dousing the businesses along the boardwalk.

State police, as well as Ocean County emergency management officials patrolled the blocks surrounding the boardwalk,which were blocked off with yellow police limes, fielding questions from curious onlookers as well as the numerous journalists who have descended upon Seaside Park this morning.

There were at least 20 television and radio vans on scene this morning.
Meanwhile, business owners took to Facebook and other social media to update fans of their businesses about their condition. From outside, it was obvious that some businesses, like Three Brothers Pizza, were gutter.

Press conferences are being held throughout the morning, including one scheduled with Gov. Chris Christie at 10:30 am.
