this is awful. I was just there two weeks ago. They had rebuilt most of it admirably after Hurricane Sandy. The area where the fire started was near the Funtown Pier which was not rebuilt starting in a Kohrs Ice Cream shop but now spreading to more buildings and now working its way further north. A strong south wind is really hurting right now in trying to contain it. It looks real bad. Hopefully they can stop it before the whole thing goes up.
These people went through hell last fall and now after rebuilding and trying to make it a go with a so so season this year its just unreal what they are facing now.
This place is more than just the place where Jersey Shore was filmed. If you ever lived in NJ, this place is part of your childhood, so many memories of days and nights on the beach and boardwalk. Hopefully the firefighters can do their job...JERSEY STRONG.
