Atlantic City firefighters extinguished a blaze beneath the Boardwalk on Saturday afternoon as daylight waned into what was expected to be the coldest night so far this fall.

Fire Department personnel responded to a 911 call at 3:45 p.m. for a fire under the Boardwalk near Morris Avenue. Within 10 minutes, crews put out the fire started at a makeshift campsite that was empty when officials arrived, Fire Chief Dennis Brooks said.

"People living under the Boardwalk, when they hear the sirens going, they get out of there and blend into the people walking on the Boardwalk," Brooks said.

No damage or injuries resulted from the fire, he said.

One mile northeast, a storefront remains shuttered since damaged by fires sparked beneath Schiff's Central Pier one year ago. Authorities believe the nighttime blazes Nov. 21 and Dec. 5 spread from small trash fires often set by homeless people for warmth.
