Wind-swept fire leaves its mark on Ocean Grove

The shore community of Ocean Grove is still dealing with its losses from this weekend's devastating fire.

One of the buildings that burned to the ground was the Manchester Inn, a well-known Victorian bed and breakfast. Several neighboring homes were also destroyed.

On Monday, some former guests visited the grounds to reminisce. The Manchester Inn dated back to 1880. The nearly 50 mph winds Saturday fueled the flames, making it difficult for firefighters to control.

Everyone inside was evacuated. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
