Fires Rekindle in Storm-Ravaged NJ Town

Fueled by natural gas, fires are burning once again in a town on the Jersey Shore that was damaged in Hurricane Sandy.

The Associated Press reports ( on a news video that shows flames spreading through the town of Mantoloking, New Jersey, which already lost 14 homes to fires in the wake of the storm.

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.

Firefighters cannot reach the scene of the fire because roads are impassable.
