    Several businesses were damaged after a fast-moving three-alarm fire engulfed a game store next door to a fire station in a Jersey Shore town overnight, officials say.
    The fire broke out in East Coast Gamers on Robbins Street in Toms River at about 11:30 p.m. Thursday, according to Toms River Fire Chief Eddie Storino.

    The fire quickly spread to two or three other businesses in the two-story building, which is also near several other municipal buildings. Flames and smoke could be seen pouring out of the building from a distance away.
    The businesses were heavily damaged in the blaze, which was brought under control by about 2 a.m. Friday, Storino said. No other buildings were damaged.
    No one was hurt in the fire.
    The cause of the fire is under investigation, Storino said.
