HAMILTON (Mercer) — The roads around the scene of a massive warehouse fire are reopened but the cause of the blaze remains under investigation.

A five alarm fire that destroyed a section of the former Goodall Rubber Complex on Whitehead Road in Hamilton started early Thursday and for most of the day. According to Hamilton Mayor Jeff Martin, 14 fire companies responded to the fire. Firefighters remained at the warehouse round the clock for several days ready to handle any flareups.

As of noon Tuesday, Whitehead Road was reopened to thru traffic in both Hamilton and Lawrence. Martin said the fire was so intense that it melted the traffic signals which had to be replaced by Mercer County Department of Transportation.
