CNN PRODUCER NOTE Anthony DeFonzo, 35, of Toms River, New Jersey, took this picture of the Seaside Heights boardwalk fire from his third-floor balcony on Thursday, September 12. 'I saw American flags blowing in the wind from my neighbors houses and I saw the wind pushing the smoke north. Yes, I could smell the fire.' He is the owner of Vinyl Mania, a company that makes decals and T-shirts. One of his best-known projects has been a T-shirt that says 'F--- Sandy,' with a New Jersey state outline and a hurricane logo in place of key letters. DeFonzo said proceeds of the shirt go to the Silverton fire department, which serves Tom River. He adds: 'This is another tragic event but New Jersey is strong, and Sandy didn't stop us from rebuilding, and a fire will not stop us from rebuilding.'
