Firefighters battled not only flames but flooding as they tried to control a coffee shop blaze in a popular Jersey Shore town Saturday.

As a winter storm continued to pound Sea Isle City with heavy winds and wet weather, firefighters tried to extinguish a fire at the Avalon Coffee Company at Landis Avenue and 42nd Street in Sea Isle City early in the afternoon.

Luckily no one was hurt.

The fact that the blaze broke out around low tide made things easier, but not easy, on firefighters.

“Luckily the tide was receding enough that all the other agencies that came to assists were able to get here… in efforts to put this fire out, said Lt. Thomas McQuillen of the Sea Isle City Police Department.

No word yet on what caused the fire.
