Fire Strikes Central Pier in AC

It's a sad and all too familiar scenario: An offseason Boardwalk fire that causes destruction that can't be measured by dollar estimates alone.

In this instance, the blaze was not in Wildwood but Atlantic City, where a three-alarmer at Schiff's Central Pier gutted several businesses last night.

Thankfully, no serious injuries were reported.

According to investigators, the fire broke out around 7 p.m. in the kitchen of 3 Brothers pizzeria, and quickly spread to two clothing stores and a photography shop.

Central Pier has been the sight of several fires over the years, including one in May 2006 that caused nearly a half-million dollars in damage.
