They worked long and hard to recover from the devastation of Superstorm Sandy, and now residents and business owners in Seaside Park, New Jersey have more work ahead of them after a raging fire ravaged an iconic boardwalk.
FOX News Radio's Jeff Monosso reports from Seaside Park, New Jersey:
The smell of charred wood permeates the air here along the eight block stretch of Ocean Avenue and the iconic boardwalk that went up in flames so fast yesterday there was little anyone could do but watch.
(Zbozny) "It feels terrible. I'm sick about it... cause it's gone now, you know, it can never be replaced."
Seaside Park resident Jim Zbozny recalling family memories while others look on at what's left of the boardwalk in disbelief months after it was rebuilt from damage done by Hurricane Sandy.
