NORMANDY BEACH - One year to the day after Sandy battered a Normandy Beach home, fire has knocked it down again.

Dick Blundin, the 32-year owner of the Normandy Drive home, vows to rebuild it again, despite the devastating setback. "It's part of life. You live with it. You go on," he says.

Sandy had flooded the home with 18 inches of water. After a year of rebuilding, furniture was set to be delivered Wednesday.

Blundin says something on the stove caught fire around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Several fire companies managed to keep the fire away from other homes, but the damage to Blundin's home was already done.

The official cause of the fire is still under investigation.
