New Jersey -

Authorities say the fire that devastated the boardwalk in Jersey Shore was due to an electrical malfunction.  The fire destroyed 86 businesses. 

Investigators say the fire began underneath a building housing Kohr's frozen custard and Biscayne Candies.  The Ocean County prosecutor says the electrical wiring had sustained damage from sand and salt water during Hurricane Sandy.  Nobody was seriously injured in the fire.
