SEASIDE PARK, N.J. (AP) — Officials are trying to determine the cause of a fire that leveled four blocks of bars, pizza shops and ice cream stores on a Jersey shore boardwalk still trying to recover from Superstorm Sandy.
But it may take some time before they can look into all the evidence.
That's because officials think hot spots could keep flaring up for days.
The fire raged for hours Thursday, sending fireballs into the sky over Seaside Heights and Seaside Park and reducing more than 30 businesses in the neighboring towns to charred remains.
Gov. Chris Christie cautions not to speculate about the cause.
Like other fires, it's being treated as a crime scene for now.
