Brunelle’s Vows To Rebuild After Fire

The owner of Brunelle’s Marina on the Connecticut River in South Hadley vows to rebuild after Friday’s fire.  The massive blaze destroyed the Dockside Restaurant, showroom and garage.  There were no injuries and no boats were damaged.  The state fire marshal’s office has been on the scene trying to determine the cause.  Luke Brunelle’s family has owned and operated the marina for more than fifty years.
