Raw Video: Fires Break Out in Storm Damaged New Jersey Town
New fires in hard hit Mantoloking community
Published Wednesday, October 31, 2012
MANTOLOKING, N.J. (AP) — Fires that destroyed about 14 homes in a New Jersey shore town that was hit hard by Sandy have rekindled, fueled by natural gas.
Video from WNBC-TV in New York shows flames reaching over Mantoloking. There's a large cluster of flames and smaller fires spread out from it.
An official with the Ocean County Emergency Management Office says authorities believe natural gas lines are fueling the flames. The official says the homes burned down two days ago when Sandy pounded the affluent town.
The official, who would not give his name, says firefighters can't reach the scene because the roads are impassable. The town was under a mandatory evacuation order ahead of the storm.
The fire is in the southern end of the town in the Curtis Point section.
