NEW JERSEY (21Alive) -- A fire on a Jersey Shore boardwalk destroyed nearly everything in its path.

Thick black smoke could be seen for several miles as it consumed building after building.

Police say much of the newly renovated boardwalk has been destroyed.

The same boardwalk was severely damaged by Hurricane Sandy, and then restored for the summer season.
