TOMS RIVER-Earlier this week, New 12 Reporter Chris Keating published a tweet that suggested a witness said the Azteca restaurant, consumed by fire this past weekend was in fact, “fire bombed”.
Today, Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office spokesperson Al DellaFave disputed that claim.
“[OCPO] confirms the fire labeled suspicious – we do not confirm the firebombing of Azteca,” DellaFave said today.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
