Fire Destroys Strip Mall in Hadley

(Hadley, MA) – Drivers will continue to be detoured past part of Route 9 in Hadley for much of the day Monday after fire destroyed a mini-mall last night. At least eight small businesses and two apartments were destroyed. Crews from ten departments battled last night’s blaze, which wiped out the one-story wooden complex housing Mi Tierra Restaurant, College Pro Computer, and the Casablanca Halal Market.  It also destroyed the Banh Mi Restaurant, Greggory’s Pastry Shop, a laundromat, a karate school and a tattoo parlor. A firefighter was injured and was taken to a nearby hospital for evaluation. Investigators are looking into the cause.
