Miss America cancels visit to boardwalk fire site

September 16, 2013

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — A visit to the scene of New Jersey's devastating boardwalk fire by the newly crowned Miss America will have to wait.

The Miss America Organization told The Associated Press Sunday night that Nina Davuluri, who won the title Sunday night in Atlantic City, would head to Seaside Park and Seaside Heights Monday afternoon to support the reconstruction efforts.

But hours later, they canceled the visit after learning that Gov. Chris Christie was making cabinet officials available to business owners victimized by the fire at the same time Davuluri planned to visit.

She'll go sometime in the future.

More than four blocks of the iconic boardwalk were destroyed by a raging wind-whipped fire on Thursday.
