SEASIDE PARK - Residents and store owners devastated by Sandy are in disbelief after a raging inferno ripped through the newly refurbished boardwalk in Seaside Park.
A community so severely damaged in the October storm is reeling after a wind-swept fire, which witnesses say began near Kohr's Ice Cream, destroyed part of Funtown Pier and several blocks of adjacent businesses. More than 400 firefighters were called to the scene.
"We don't need this again," says Seaside Heights resident Elisa Hewson. "This is terrible."
Community members say they will rebound from the tragedy, but are growing tired of the constant struggle.
