After Flare-Up, Plans For Rebuilding

Monday, September 16, 2013

State officials will be on hand to offer assistance as rebuilding efforts get underway at the scene of the Seaside Park boardwalk fire.
  
Representatives from the New Jersey Economic Development Authority and other agencies will provide information to businesses and residents at the Seaside Heights Municipal Complex today.

Governor Christie has pledged $15 million in state aid for businesses damaged by the fire.
  
Thursday's wind-whipped blaze destroyed dozens of ocean-front businesses in Seaside Park and Seaside Heights - - an area that was still recovering from Sandy.
 
Firefighters quickly extinguished a flare-up in a debris pile on the south end of the boardwalk behind a Seaside Park bar early Sunday.

Officials are still investigating the cause.
