New Jersey Fire

Coronato, left, looks on as Jessica Gotthold, senior special agent for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and Explosives, uses a laser-pointer to describe a photograph of a fire that started last Thursday near a frozen custard stand on the boardwalk in Seaside Park, quickly spreading north into neighboring Seaside Heights. Authorities said the massive boardwalk fire in New Jersey was accidental and linked it to electrical wiring and equipment that was compromised by Superstorm Sandy nearly a year ago. Investigators say the fire, which destroyed more than 50 boardwalk businesses, started under a building that housed a candy store and an ice cream stand. The equipment had been inaccessible since Sandy struck in late October. (AP Photo/Mel Evans)
