HADLEY, Mass. (AP) — The state fire marshal is investigating a massive blaze that tore through a strip mall in Hadley.
Authorities say the fire broke out Sunday evening and spread throughout the complex, which includes business and residential units.
One firefighter was injured and taken to a local hospital for treatment. More than 60 firefighters from a dozen area communities battled the blaze and some crews remained at the scene on Monday.
Officials tell the Republican newspaper of Springfield (http://bit.ly/HlFrJf ) that a large stretch of Route 9 would be closed to traffic during the morning rush hour.
The cause of the fire was not immediately known.
