Funtown Pier in Seaside Park has collapsed after being engulfed in flames by a fire that has been burning for several hours. Shortly after the building collapsed, a construction vehicle which was parked at the site exploded.

The building in the video is said to be the former log flume housing structure.

Funtown Pier has been closed off since it was heavily damaged during Superstorm Sandy.

So according to the lamestream media, the fire started at "Kohls" (not KOHR'S), 80% of the NEW Seaside HEIGHTS boardwalk has been destroyed, and FUNTIME Pier has collapsed. No wonder the national approval of the media is at an all time low.

Having worked at the pier off and on over the past decade, I can inform you that the Funtown building in question was an uninhabited yet furnished apartment for use by the pier owner.

Looks like the "Jersey Shore" has a little bit of a "Situation". Or, in the parlance, they got "Snoooki-ered"...
