Fire department spokesperson said 110 homes burned to the ground and another 20 were damaged by fire spread by Sandy’s near-hurricane force winds in Breezy Point.

Like Breezy Point, Belle Harbor is a private beach community in the Rockaway area, a narrow spit of land barely above sea level that thrusts into the Atlantic Ocean southwest of John F. Kennedy International Airport.

The area had been extensively flooded by Sandy’s record storm surge, which made it very hard for the firefighters who sped to the scene.

Millions of people across the eastern United States awoke on Tuesday to scenes of destruction wrought by monster storm Sandy, which knocked out power to huge swathes of the nation’s most densely populated region, swamped New York’s subway system and submerged streets in Manhattan’s financial district.
