8:05 am
morning. dozens of fire crews descended on the scene here, and pouring water on to the flames. you can imagine because of the dry cleaning fluids in the plant because the work was done right here on site. it was not sent out to another location. all these dry cleaning fluids flammable fueling this very fierce fire. crews did get the fire under control. they made quick work of it and able to keep it from spreading to an auto mechanics next door but again thinks busy stretch of ridge avenue and road is closed down for a block. there is a hospital, right next door, and we are told the owner is in the hospital, he just underwent heart surgery recently. i also spoke to a neighbor. thinks a pretty prestigious place, mike anal ex. some of the clients were philadelphia museum of art and national constitution center. one of their neighbors said they even at one time did a dress to blank to the late princess diana, there was a a parentally an exhibit in town and this dry cleaners clean
8:06 am

8:07 am
place is shutting down or they wanted a free souvenir here. they tried to twist letters right off the front wall, before the place is big, dark and vacant. mayor talk about what will happen to places like show boat, trump plaza and revel once they are unused, and unfilled. >> we're the first city hit the by a national trend and that is proliferation of gambling all over. we had 12 casinos in atlantic city that controlled the market outside of vegas, we are now sharing that same with 30 casinos. too many casinos, not enough players. it hit us hard. we had all of our eggs in one bass death. we were just known as a gambling town. i think as lou around me here today you can already see that these people are not gamblers walking autopsy and down the boardwalk. they are family with kids and they are coming to the beach, going fishing, they are doing the aquarium and doing steel pier, they are going out on dolphin watch.
8:08 am
that is point we have to make. we are still jersey shore. we are the urban center on the jersey shore with you us as a gambling casino town those days are gone. >> reporter: revel does have three hours to check out and get out of their rooms. the hotel, tallest building this part of the new jersey. second tallest in the state shut down at 11: casino shuts down tomorrow at 5:00. the place says shut down may sell for as little as 25 million-dollar fit sells at all mike annal egg. that is 1 percent of what it cost to build this place, equivalent of say if you bought a beach house in longport for a million-dollar and it brand new built from the sand, less than three years ago and only being able to sell it at the end of the summer for $10,000. 1 percent of what you paid for it. it is staggering. >> wow. >> that is staggering, my goodness. >> we will probably do more reports throughout the weekend from atlantic city. >> we have special guests because we have something for
