Fire investigators in New Jersey say a blaze that destroyed businesses on the famous Atlantic City boardwalk apparently started in a pizza shop.
No serious injuries were reported after the blaze broke out on the Central Pier shortly before 7 p.m. Saturday. It took nearly four hours to bring under control.
Investigators say the flames quickly spread from the pizza shop to two clothing stores and a photography shop. The fire created billows of thick smoke.
The Central Pier has been hit by other fires in its history, including one in May 2006 that caused nearly a half-million dollars in damage.
