SEASIDE PARK, N.J. (AP) — Firefighters have extinguished a flare-up following the massive fire that swept through a New Jersey beachfront boardwalk three days ago.
The Ocean County Prosecutor's Office says the flare-up occurred at about 2:20 a.m. Sunday in a debris pile on the south end of the boardwalk behind a Seaside Park bar. Fire companies from Seaside Park and Seaside Heights extinguished the fire by 3 a.m.
Fire and emergency management officials are monitoring the fire zone until 6 p.m. Monday and will meet then to decide if further monitoring is necessary.
The wind-whipped blaze destroyed dozens of ocean-front businesses Thursday in an area that was still recovering from Superstorm Sandy.
Officials are still investigating the cause.
On Saturday, Gov. Chris Christie pledged $15 million in state aid for businesses damaged by the fire.
