The Seaside Boardwalk Fire

Around 2:30 this afternoon a small fire started on the boardwalk in Seaside Park.  

To say it escalated quickly, is an understatement. 

It quickly grew to a 5 alarm fire, then reaching 10 alarm status in the blink of an eye.

Sandy was bad, Sandy was horrible,
but we didn't watch Sandy destroy the boardwalk.

Watching this happen in basically real time is like watching your childhood home burn to the ground.

My heart is very heavy tonight.
And my thoughts go out to everyone on the scene responding to putting out this fire,
the volunteers bringing the supplies
the families of both
and the business owners.

  1. It is so sad what happened there. I used to love going to seaside when I was a kid. Going on the cable cars and dangling your feet over the edge and dropping candy wrappers wondering if it would it some one. :-)
