Avalon Coffee Company in Sea Isle torn down following fire

Fire-Rescue News

Winter Storm Sunday Winter Storm Sunday

 SEA ISLE CITY — Surge protectors were to blame for several fire calls Saturday, Sea Isle City Fire Department President Pete Pittaluga said Sunday morning.

Water that seeped into and surrounded buildings zapped several devices that were on the floor and still plugged into electrical outlets, causing smoke in buildings and alarms to sound, he said.

The biggest blaze firefighters fought was at the Avalon Coffee Company, which was torn down following Saturday’s fire. Fire companies from Rio Grande and Middle Township, Seaville and Oceanview in Upper Township, and Somers Point all responded, Pittaluga said.

No cause has been determined, although Pittaluga speculated thta either a power surge or a blown transformer was responsible. He said “two big booms” were heard at the property before the fire started.

Firefighters also responded to an alarm at the Ocean Drive, wading through freezing, waist-deep flood waters to reach the popular bar, Pittaluga said. He said many of the fire calls occurred at the time of the morning tidal surge.

Saturday morning’s high tide in the resort came within 6 to 8 inches of what was experienced during Hurricane Sandy in 2012, Pittaluga said, reaching as far as the door of the fire hall. If the wind had not shifted Saturday night, the tide — on top of water trapped on the island — would have exceeded that of Sandy, he said.

Sunday morning, most streets in the city remained flooded from water that had not drained.
