Structure Fire Rips Through Monmouth Beach as Flames Engulf Homes

First responders are on scene of a three-alarm fire in Monmouth Beach. The fire broke out late this morning as crews rushed to the scene.

The Monmouth Beach Police Department urged people to avoid the area of Valentine Street and Riverdale Avenue. Several roadways are closed in the area, and drivers should expect detours locally.

Witnesses reported two homes to have been severely charred as the residences still stand but suffered serious damage.
