ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — The newly crowned Miss America will visit the scene of New Jersey's devastating boardwalk fire.

The Miss America Organization tells The Associated Press that the newly crowned Miss America, who won the title Sunday night in Atlantic City, will head to Seaside Park and Seaside Heights Monday afternoon to support the reconstruction efforts.

More than four blocks of the iconic boardwalk were destroyed by a raging wind-whipped fire on Thursday.

The visit will come after the new Miss America does the traditional frolic in the Atlantic City surf Monday morning, the day after winning the title.
