SEASIDE PARK, N.J. (AP) — President Barack Obama says his administration will continue to support New Jersey in its efforts to recover and rebuild after a fire devastated part of a boardwalk just recovering from Superstorm Sandy.

Obama said in a statement Friday he was grateful for the work of the first responders and the safety of all involved after Thursday's boardwalk fire in Seaside Park and Seaside Heights.

The White House statement says the Obama administration will support state and local efforts to rebuild after yet another blow to New Jersey's residents and businesses. The fire engulfed more than four blocks of a Jersey shore boardwalk that had been rebuilt just five months ago. The cause of Thursday's blaze is under investigation.
