A pile of debris behind the Sawmill Bar in Seaside Park flared up early Sunday morning around 2:20 a.m. which was doused with water by Seaside Park and Seaside Heights fire companies and put out by 3 a.m. according to the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office. Crews also wet down the area to make sure nothing else flared up.

The Prosecutor’s office had no comment on the progress of the investigation.

Law enforcement continues to patrol the fire zone round the clock but will reassess the need for continuous patrol tomorrow.

Governor Christie spent much of Saturday in Seaside and will be back on Monday with a “mobile cabinet” at the Seaside Heights Municipal Courtroom on Sherman Avenue from 3 p.m. – 9 p.m. Representative from several cabinet offices including the Department of Environmental Protection, the Treasury, and Department of Transportation will be able to help with questions related to both Sandy and the boardwalk fire.

Yesterday he walked the boardwalk and pledged $15 million in state aid Saturday for businesses damaged by the fire.

Most of the boardwalk remains undamaged and open for business north of Lincoln Avenue. People crowded the boards on Saturday. “It’s packed and fun,” Sharon Ott told Newsworks. Kelly Whalen, a part owner of Lucky Leo’s just north of the fire zone said she had a good day on Saturday. “Business is great today,” she told Newsworks. “The response has been overwhelming.”
