Officials from ATF Investigating Jersey Shore Fire

Spencer Platt/Getty Images(SEASIDE PARK, N.J.) -- Two days after a fire on the Jersey Shore boardwalk in Seaside Park, firefighters are still putting out hot spots.

Personnel from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are at the scene to try to "determine the cause and origin" of the fire, an official told ABC News.

About 15 ATF officials are part of the inspection, including structural engineers, electrical engineers, and investigators.

An official said the cause of the blaze has not yet been determined.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was also in Seaside Park on Saturday. Christie was back for a third day in a row, surveying the boardwalk's damage and reminding residents that they will rebuild.
