HADLEY, Mass. (WWLP) - The Hadley Fire Department is hoping to hear from people that were near a laundromat before the start of a fire that destroyed a 15-unit shopping plaza Sunday night.
Fire Capt. Michael Spanknabel notified 22News that they are looking for people who might have been in or around the Hadley Coin Op Laundromat before 7:39 Sunday evening. Town firefighters and the State Fire Marshal’s Office are looking for information in their investigation of the devastating fire.
The fire in the plaza at 206 Russell Street reduced several businesses and two apartments to rubble. More than 60 firefighters from departments as far away as Dudley were called-in to fight the massive fire, which burned through the night, and caused a section of Route 9 to be closed well into the next afternoon.
If you were near the laundromat during that time, you are asked to call the Hadley Fire Department at (413) 584-0874.
