Firefighters have put out a blaze that heavily damaged the Villa Vittoria restaurant in Brick Monday, but fortunately, officials said, there were no injuries related to the incident.

Firefighters were called to the restaurant, located near the intersection of Hooper Avenue and Mantoloking Road, at about 3:30 p.m., said Kevin Batzel, chief of the Brick Township Bureau of Fire Safety.

“There were no patrons inside at the time,” said Batzel.

Restaurant staff were inside, but were alerted to the fire by alarms and escaped safely,Batzel said.

The restaurant suffered “heavy fire damage,” he said, primarily in the kitchen and the second level area on top of the kitchen. There was “heavy smoke and water damage throughout the dining room and bar area,” he added.

The fire, which drew a response from all of Brick’s fire companies, as well as the Mantoloking, Silverton and Point Pleasant companies, remains under investigation. Investigators from the bureau, Brick police department and Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office are tasked with determining the cause.

      That is the best comment I have seen so far, you have boiled her down to her base. Hillary is the definition of disgusting.

    Donald, I’m sure, will be proud of your vote.

  • Glenn

    Your comments were funny, but a tad distasteful, however, you apparently support Trump! Can’t get worse then that, but I did see the humor.

    • 2nd4ever

      I suppose you support Hillary, intelligent, patriotic American that you are. She is just what the country needs, another self centered, embezzling, re distributor of my hard work and wealth. Go ahead, vote for her, when she comes for your money, your tune will change but maybe you are one of the people getting fat off my wealth.

      • J W

        Yeah, I’m sure you’re in the poor house from Hillary rather than vulture crapitalists like El Trumpo. Another fine example of the pointlessly angry idiot American voter.

      • Donald Trump for President

        Still acting like a tough guy, aren’t you little girl.

      • 2nd4ever

        No, I am not in the poor house, as a matter of fact my wife and I have done well, both being non college educated (non indoctrinated) I have a really nice 401k and I don’t wanted invested in any more “shovel ready” crap. if you have not done well then I suggest you work harder and not cry about “not getting your fair share”. I really don’t think that most people understand our constitution. Equal opportunity, not equal outcome.

      • J W

        It’s only equal opportunity if you’re white. In other words, you got yours and now the rest can go stuff it. Typical greedhead.

      • 2nd4ever

        I WORKED hard for mine and have the scars to prove it, “greed head” because I gave it all I had at the jobs I did. I worked for people, never owned my own business. So many people feel that society owes them something, what the hell does white have to do with anything, my grandparents came over on a boat with nothing and made decent lives for themselves with 5th grade educations, hell you went to college and learned nothing but how to be a victim. nobody wants to work anymore, poor me, give me your stuff cause I don’t want to pick myself up, dust off and give it hell, I really truly feel sorry for you there is NOTHIHG I am incapable of doing, My house was flooded from Sandy, still rebuilding, didn’t stick the bank, stuck to my commitment to my property and the obligations I made when
        I borrowed the money

      • J W

        You’re angrier, rantier and dimmer than even Frank Rizzo. We got a new resident troll here everybody. Congrats.

      • 2nd4ever

        My friend I am not even slightly angry, you want to see angry, break into my house, then You will see angry. It just amazes me how misinformed you are about what made this nation great. If you are upset with America and the constitution, get it changed, it’s been done. But since you can’t do that in the manner prescribed by it, you elect people who usurp it and distort it’s language to fit your need for reparation, again “poor me” And Dim? You can’t hold a candle to what I know and what I have accomplished and if you are correct and Hillary is going to lead the nation what is your next move? Ask for more? I, at least have a plan. When this all blows up I can guarantee you will be the first to perish, for you rely on government, I rely on myself. This is actually quite entertaining to me, because most of your generation hide behind their devices and would never be man enough to have this conversation face to face. You only hang out with like minded individuals who would neverpick up a weapon and fight to keep this nation free if it were under attack (which it is) you only use your mouth to degrade it for your own personal gain. It’s all Americas racist, biased, nativist…….fault. I can guarantee you this the people who sold you this pile of crap are not going to be there to pick up the pieces when the wealthy and others who contribute, pick up and go. Maybe they will print another 4 trillion dollars out of thin air, see what that money buys. I know I am a hater because I don’t feel I owe you anything.

      • J W

        Dude, you’re on food stamps. Get over yourself. If you quit yapping, maybe you’d be a little more happy with Obama. If you’re so successful and self-made like you say you are, you’d have nothing to do but thank him for it. He’s been a great president for you by any estimate. He’d be even better if we could eradicate the Rethuglicant vermin though. You people hate America and are unpatriotic. Shame on you.

      • 2nd4ever

        Obama has crapped on the constitution and has exceeded his authority in more ways than I can count, Bush was no better, Hillary is a pathological liar who only cares about her reign as queen of the US, I just want somebody, anybody, who is a self serving political hack, Should I thank Obama for my health insurance doubling? And I don’t hate America, I love it, more than anything else except for Christ and my wife. The constitution is the law of the land, playing around with it is the creed of dictators, the men who wrote it were far advanced in their thought, I know evil white slave owners, get over it, Go ahead, give up your rights, leave mine alone, enough of this, people like you have to learn the hard way, let the liberals talk you out of life liberty and happiness in exchange for food and security, you will have neither.

      • 2nd4ever

        Something else I failed to mention, Obama has another record, more manufacturing jobs and ancillary businesses have left in the last 6 years then in the previous 20, how are you supposed to get a good job, when the only places to work sell food? Do you here Hillary saying she’s going to bring back manufacturing? No she wants to expand social security. I assume you are black, Obama has screwed you worse than anybody, he opened the floodgates from Mexico, but guess what, the Mexicans DO work, and most work very hard, she’s on TV now talking about raising the minimum wage, where is that money supposed to come from? A happy meal will be ten bucks, doesn’t matter to me though cause I don’t eat there. So let’s sum it up, the Hillary plan, disarm the law abiding public, then take all their stuff and give it to the victims, sounds fair to me

      • Glenn

        Actually Trump already took my money. I was a contractor on Trump Plaza and the Taj. Try and find one supporter of Trump that ever worked for the cheating piece of…..

      • 2nd4ever

        Sorry to hear that, are you 100 percent sure the job was done correctly? After dealing with contractors here after Sandy I found out just how irresponsible and thieving contractors can be. Filed criminal charges against one and got restitution, doing the rest of the work myself, it’s less expensive and the end result is higher quality. And if what you say is true, that Trump rips off everyone, why would ANYONE take a job from him?

  • Smokin

    Hey Donald trump…keep eating your happy meals..

    • Hydra Trump

      Thanks! I will!

  • Jay Dee

    You’re all a bunch of assholes

    • steamship42

      Well, then, apparently you found the group in which you belong. Heck, I will even nominate you to be the President of the club.

      • Jay Dee

        May you someday experience a house fire

      • steamship42

        If I do, you’ll now be the first suspect. But, since you mention it, I have 12 years experience as a firefighter. And you know what I refrain from doing? Running my mouth online or in person about how people are a bunch of assholes. So go ahead and wish fire on my house. all I wanted to do was elect you President of a club you have twice now shown you are qualified for membership. Have a good day, Mr. President.

  • Kimberleely

    Wow folks. People just lost their livelihood. Let’s have a little compassion for the cooks, the waiters, the bartenders and the owners. And we just lost a very good Italian restaurant. Trump didn’t do this, Hillary didn’t do this, Bush didn’t do this. Who knows what happened,we will find out eventually. I hope they rebuild, but if history of burned out restaurants is anything, they probably won’t. If they decide to rebuild, the way Brick department of building is, it’ll take them years.

    • 2nd4ever

      I agree with you, my wife and I ate there often, and yes the building department ( not the inspectors) will make it a living hell. I was just having some political debate with some of the uninformed of how our nation became what it is, and what is going to happen if we don’t change course. Am I 100 percent sure Trump is the answer, absolutely not, but I do know 2 things. Trump is proud of his name and reputation and I have to believe he will surround himself with intelligent, capable people who will bring some manufacturing back to this nation, we can’t keep selling each other cheeseburgers for ever. Secondly we already know what 8 years of Obama has done, 4 or 8 from her and the economy will collapse.

      • Mac

        Trump “will surround himself with intelligent, capable people who…” – please start to pay attention – Trump’s first pick for his possible POTUS service was to pick Chris Christie as his top man in his administration – how could anything after that desperate pick do anything but go downhill for the integrity and security of the American public?

      • 2nd4ever

        I suppose you think that Obama is capable, let’s look at his resume, free ride college, selling weed on the beach in Hawaii (as “Barry”), community organizer, senator for a year, NEVER made a product, ran a company, or did anything but dispose his anti colonial rhetoric on the people who were dumb enough to listen. If you think this nation is going to stay together, with a debt of 20 trillion and growing, you have FAILED math and economics and as far as security goes, what possesses the Democratic Party with always using Islamic terrorist activity as a reason to attempt to disarm the public? Sounds like a plan to me, nuts from the Middle East and their followers shoot up a nightclub so let’s get the guns from the law abiding citizens.

      • Mac

        Wow! Do you hold elective office? You don’t seem to have much room for compromise much less an adjustment of thought. We could go back and forth all day on who’s who comparisons. My point was what intelligent leader that wasn’t hopelessly desperate for someone, even anyone, to guide his leaky ship through the storm, would choose Chris Christie, a self-made lifetime public disaster of any form of leadership with integrity, to such an important position in his campaign?.I’m not much of a Romney supporter but even he wasn’t desperate enough to add Christie to his team. And that was when Christie was still fooling most of America.

      • 2nd4ever

        Joe Biden, the brain surgeon, Christie is not going to be the VP, it’s Gingrich, Christie will be AG, which he is capable of doing. I am not thrilled with Trump, but our country will soon disintegrate if we stay on this path, it’s simple economics not to mention the Iran deal, ever heard of EMP, you will, trust me on this, this is what they are up to. And as far as Christie goes, what did you expect in this state, this state is already in a decline that will eventually bankrupt it, look at how many people leave each year, they try to keep you here with a property exit tax, what kind of jackass politician does that? One who does not care about anybody but himself.

      • Mac

        It’s safe to assume we’re not going to agree on Trump. Gingrich and Christie share the same lack of both morals and integrity, and Christie as AG will totally destroy any trust, faith and/or belief the American people have left in our justice system. While Clinton certainly leaves much to be desired, the Republicans have been so busy shutting down America for 7 1/2 years to try and keep a black President in check that they have failed to produce a visual leader with something positive to contribute to our society. That’s how we got Trump to begin with. While I’m an old school Republican in spirit, neither Trump, Christie nor Gingrich represent my values at all, just their greedy and deceptive needs.
        In today’s world, the only true difference I see between our two major parties is that Dems share a little with the public while the Reps keep it all for themselves, mostly in off-shore accounts.

      • 2nd4ever

        You think the Democrats leave some for the public, if you mean the non working, illegal immigrant public. All I have seen is redistribution of my wealth for the past seven years. My health premiums have skyrocketed to pay for those who don’t won’t, co pays on meds from 45 to top tier 100 bucks, Medication denials every six months. The Democratic Party only cares about eternal rule and will allow anyone in the country who will vote for them, they will pay out welfare, EBT, car insurance, pay utility bills and give medical insurance for the “disadvantaged” This is why we are on an unsustainable path to insolvency . Then when give some bullshit excuse for the lights going out, they will climb into the bunkers you paid for and draft a NEW constitution. Three years later when most folks are dead, they will emerge with the new order. ALL politicians lie, but Obama and Hillary have made it an art form. I know, I know, conspiracy theory, but if you understand history any government has and will protect itself first sacrificing its citizens for the “greater good”. After all they, the elite are better at running your life and managing your income than you are, and to be honest I can’t wait till it happens, the earth will be purged of all of the know it alls that have challenged God, no faith, no fear. Man always thinks he is in control. And those in government since they possess no faith have no “backstop” to their actions.

      • J W

        I’m sure that was an interesting conversation you had. Being proudly non-college educated (as you mentioned below), I bet that involved you repeating some nonsense you were brainwashed with from Fox or Breitbart. Funny how you’re doing so well under Obama and keen to blame everyone else for not working hard enough in the land of equal opportunity (only for white people though), but the country is so on the wrong track and only bad because of evil Democrats. Ever hear of a thing called ‘cognitive dissonance’? You’ve got enough for an entire cult, but that’s the AmeriKKKan right wing these days. Boy are you people gonna be sad in November. I’m expecting the suicide rate to tick up.

      • 2nd4ever

        Yes proudly non college educated, my mind was not loaded with the victim hood crap you dispose here. I can tell you how to do it, get the hell up EARLY in the morning, go to wherever you work and pick up the trash in the parking lot, go in, do your job, don’t bitch no matter what crap gets hurled your way, stay late, ask you boss EVERY day before you get your coat, “Is there anything else you need me to do before I go” THIS iS HOW YOU SUCCEED. If your boss does not reward you for your efforts, go somewhere else your boss is an ASS. And as far as the suicide rate going up, not going to be me, I will take my wealth, my wife and my stuff to another state and not keep feeding the “poor me” folks that call NJ home. It’s not right wing, it’s common sense, “We the people” don’t owe you a damn thing, get out and EARN ! Hope I haven’t offended you with any “micro aggressions” get over yourself, the world doesn’t care a rats ass about you, YOU are supposed to care enough about yourself to NEVER give up.

      • J W

        Apparently your mind is still empty if all you can regurgitate are long diatribes you remember from Brush Lintball’s waste of radio space. I can’t believe a ‘hard worker’ like yourself wasted so much time typing such pure drivel. Hope your head explodes on Election Day when Hillary Rodham Clinton officially becomes our next President of the United States of America. HAWHAWHAW

      • 2nd4ever

        Let me guess, are 24 or 25? You obviously have no idea of what our constitution is all about, you just want, and you don’t care who has to sacrifice for you inability to take responsibility for your own destiny, the ONLY thing you truly have control of. As a matter of fact I am still a hard worker, I am laying tile. Funny how a former printer, police dispatcher and firefighter can do all this. Less time bitching, more time learning. Learning things that are useful instead of learning how to be a full time victim. My friend you should have been at work instead of having this diatribe with me, I am retired, no roots here. Do you really think your girl Hillary is going to come and take all my stuff and give it to you? If you do think that then you better petition congress to get matches outlawed, because I will be damned if I will let the government take my possessions and give them to people who spend more time sulking and no time working. Pathetic

      • J W

        I’m older than you dude, and properly educated enough to know the difference between bogus rhetoric, talking points and the conspiracy theories you’re so high on. If Jim Jones were around today, you’d no doubt be taken in by him. And if you’re gonna start burning stuff down to keep mean Hillary from getting it, do it now. Trump is gonna be in prison for his university scam, his charity scams, his corporate frauds- he’s FIRED! lol

        And if you’ve got enough time on your hands to write these mini-essays of half mad rants, you aren’t gainfully employed. I do not begrudge the welfare king their checks since they keep you people from a life of raping and pillaging, which we all know the white male is so incredibly inclined towards.

      • 2nd4ever

        Not a chance with Jim jones, Christ is my lord, and I hope I am alive when he returns, going to be a great show, As far as gainfully employed, I am retired, 55, fixing my second home, There are ways to do it, I have never raped or pillaged, just worked hard, saved and didn’t spend my money on frivolous crap like fancy cars or all you eat cruises. Give me one good reason why I should give up ANY of what I have worked and saved for to some lazy fool, who wants to cry about injustice instead of work, get over it. Like I said , the world doesn’t care about you, you should care about you, I don’t owe you or any other person who chooses not to work ANYTHING. Never owned slaves, think it was a disgusting part of history, and found what whites did to blacks during the civil rights movement HORRIBLE, I had no part in any of that, therefore have no “white guilt”. Why is it that people feel they need to vote for someone who will give them something? I have heard that from a local 825 worker, he stated” things will be better for me”, no connection to your country? What are you going to tell your kids when the country falls apart, Hillary was better for me, what about them? Do you really think at the current spending levels that the country is going to continue forever? It’s not, you being far more educated that I should be able to do the math, when the debt hits 24 trillion, it will exceed the entire net worth of the nation. I want to know one thing, what gives you the right to assume I am a racist? We should have this conversation 10 years from now, remember ” fuck the future”? No, the future fucks you.

      • 2nd4ever

        Get a job with Reverand Wright,
        I am out of here, no sense talking with ideological idiots looking for social justice, poor poor pitiful me, I deserve, I want, still complaining about the past hoping for another handout, I am going fishing, should have never bothered with this crap, may the lord lift you up and let you see the enslavement the democrats have perpetrated on you.

  • Surfrider

    Surprised not more fires around here with all the smokers out there that toss their butts out the window rather than put in their “candy” ashtray in car……..disgusting…beep when a slob does that in front of you while driving…..

  • Mac

    the prosecutor’s office is currently short-handed after spending the holiday weekend staffing numerous dwi roadblocks and writing dozens of under-inflated tire tickets – since it’s believed the fire was started from some faulty below water level wiring, the handful of available arson investigators again believe another sneak attack from Hurricane Sandy is the suspected culprit of the fire

  • Hydra Trump

    I am so proud of you all that made this about me. That’s why I am going to WIN Ocean County and WIN this congressional district! I hope one day to open a casino in Ocean County (it will close soon because of losers).
