New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is defending his decision to take some federal Sandy relief money to help businesses hit by last week’s boardwalk fire in Seaside Heights.
The Christie Administration announced it will hold its second Mobile Cabinet to assist Seaside residents and businesses impacted by last week’s Boardwalk fire.
Authorities say a massive boardwalk fire in New Jersey was accidental and they have linked it to electrical wiring and equipment they say was compromised by Superstorm Sandy nearly a year ago.
New Jersey will use Superstorm Sandy-recovery money to pay for debris removal at the scene of last week’s boardwalk fire in Seaside Park and Seaside Heights.

Gov. Chris Christie plans $15 million in state aid to businesses damaged in a massive boardwalk fire at the Jersey shore.
Despite the devastation, however, residents and business owners tell Eyewitness News, Seaside Park is one resilient community and they will rebuild.
