Struggling NJ Bowling Alley Owner Torches Better-Run Competitor

When bowling alley manager Steven Smink was asked by thePress of Atlantic Cityabout a fire that engulfed his rival Loyle Lanes Bowling Center of Vineland, N.J., outside of Atlantic City, he sounded sympathetic.

"These things happen," he told the paper. "You have wires all over the place and no sprinkler systems. You just pray that nothing shorts out and that no people are in the building if a fire breaks out."
