Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J., was quick to react to the boardwalk fire in Seaside that destroyed nearly 50 businesses — at an area that was still rebuilding after the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy in 2012.

"I feel like I want to throw up, and that's me," Christie said during press conference Thursday evening. "After all the effort and time and resources that we put in to help the folks in Seaside Park and Seaside Heights rebuild, to see this going on as I said at the top is just unthinkable."

Christie reminded the residents and business owners that they would rebuild again.

"Listen, this is us, so as soon as this is over, we'll pick ourselves up we'll dust ourselves off and we'll get back to work," Christie added.
