A visit to the scene of New Jersey's devastating boardwalk fire by the newly crowned Miss America will have to wait.

The Miss America Organization told The Associated Press after Nina Davuluri won Sunday night that she would head to Seaside Park and Seaside Heights Monday afternoon to support the reconstruction efforts.

They canceled the visit hours later after learning that Gov. Chris Christie was making cabinet officials available to business owners affected by the fire at the same time Davuluri planned to visit.

She'll go sometime in the future.

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