Fire Destroys Shop on Ocean City Boardwalk

A fire destroyed a shop on the Ocean City Boardwalk only a week before Memorial Day weekend.

The fire started on the 7th Street Surf Shop on 654 Boardwalk Saturday night. One employee was inside the shop at the time but managed to get out. No one was injured during the blaze.

Firefighters cut holes in the roof of the shop to attack the flames quickly and were able to bring the fire under control in an hour.

The Ocean City Fire Department announced the shop was a complete loss. The fire also caused some smoke damage to a neighboring business which officials say will be easy to fix.

Officials continue to investigate the cause of the blaze.
