Fire rages along NJ boardwalk damaged by Sandy

SEASIDE PARK, N.J. (AP) - A raging fire that apparently started in a New Jersey ice cream shop is threatening businesses along a boardwalk that was damaged in Superstorm Sandy.

Video from television station News 12 shows flames and smoke spewing from Kohr's Ice Cream on the boardwalk in Seaside Park. Seaside Heights Police Chief Thomas Boyd tells The Star-Ledger the fire spread to adjacent structures around 2:30 p.m.

Boyd says several firefighters and residents are being treated for smoke inhalation. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Kohr's is on a boardwalk that was rebuilt following extensive damage from Sandy in October.

Seaside Park is near where a roller coaster that was pushed into the ocean became an enduring image of the storm.
