Fire on the beach….

Ocean Grove, NJ. Summer 2019. Paul Goldfinger photo.


This is a Victorian town founded in 1869.  It is on the Ocean.  The homes are wood construction and the risk of fire is considerable.  In 2019, for the 150th anniversary of the town, they allowed a bonfire, but it was extinguished pretty quickly.
