Firefighters are struggling to contain a massive fire near a popular boardwalk in Seaside Heights, New Jersey, police say.

The town is still being rebuilt after the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy last year.

Initial reports suggest the fire started at an ice cream building in Seaside Park and spread to surrounding buildings.
