(Hadley, MA) — Efforts are underway to help the victims of Sunday’s strip mall fire in Hadley.

The “Hadley Business Fire Relief Fund” can be accessed through the website of the Amherst Area Chamber of Commerce. The Facebook Page “Help the Rt 9 Hadley Fire Victims” is also coordinating its efforts with the Chamber. The investigation into the cause of the fire is focused on the laundromat at the rear of the plaza.
