The Casinos. They have to have some kind of fire equipment. They are multi-story.
There are tired firefighters besides. And the Governor might want to move the journalists a safe distance from danger. I realize he has no fear, but, there are limits.
A lot of these towns have volunteer firefighters, too. Not that they aren't trained well, but, they could be overwhelmed by the enormity of it.
SEASIDE PARK, N.J. — A fire (click here) that started at a New Jersey frozen custard shop in Seaside Park, N.J., and spread to other boardwalk businesses, including FunTown Pier, destroyed much of an iconic boardwalk just rebuilt after Superstorm Sandy.
Emergency personnel arrived at the boardwalk in Seaside Park for a report of smoke about 2:30 p.m. A plume of gray smoke stretches as far north as Ortley Beach, N.J., as fire crews fight to douse the blaze. The cause of the fire is still unclear.
The fire that started at Kohr's Frozen Custard quickly compromised buildings on the west side, including what was left of FunTown Pier — the site of the roller coaster that was pushed into the ocean during Superstorm Sandy. A strong wind has worsened the firefighters' attempts, Police Chief Francis Larkin said...
It started as a inferno. The fire may be too hot for water. Water evaporates and this might be wood, but, the fire will sizzle the water off the fire and it won't smother it.
I think foam is the only thing that will finally stop it. It has to be smothered and robbed of oxygen.
Maybe several water drops from the ocean. They just have to make sure there aren't divers or small boats at the water pick up point.
