5 businesses destroyed in fire at Village Plaza strip mall in Westfield
A fire tore through a strip mall in Westfield Monday, destroying five of the eight businesses.
Firefighters say they arrived to find flames coming from the back of the Karate N Motion karate studio and thick smoke billowing out of a nail salon and cleaners on either side. The fire was so intense, nearly half of the roof of the strip mall caved in.
