It was a sad day for a popular Jersey Shore sub shop in Bayville after Emergency Crews were called in to put out a three-alarm fire at Richards Sub World and Deli on Tuesday afternoon.

Two firefighters were in need of medical attention by emergency crews, with one suffering from heat exhaustion and the other with an undisclosed minor injury.

The cause of the blaze is unknown.
