* The title should read, “50 homes destroyed...”.

The article doesn’t give much specific detail on this particular fire, but it has been going on all night now, and firefighters are having a lot of trouble with it. I will post another link here if I find something that has more information.

Sadly, fires often result during floods because water and electricity do not mix well.

Nobody should be in Breezy now. It is a great place, a barrier beach locked community co-op with bungalows and a few sand streets between Manhattan and Long Island and the Atlantic - the “point” with riptides and great views to match. The cars are all kept in Parking lots farther in. There are no real big buildings, no real streets - you have to leave to go to high school, etc - It’s quite special.

I have a friend who lived there and visiting was really fun. Roll out of bed and go swimming in the ocean. At night, go out on the boardwalk and look at Coney Island, right there.

Breezy isn’t that big and a fire of 50 homes is devastating. They had a twister last year and that was quite strange. It’s expensive to get a place but you can’t just buy there - you have to be recommended by community folks.

Don't know what area is exactly burnt - I was thinking the actual "point" - this is a picture of that area before the fire:

Unfortunately, it’s even worse.....FOX Radio News at 11 AM Eastern time reported more than 80 homes destroyed.
