The Salem Fire Department says heavy equipment will remove portions of a collapsed roof Wednesday to help investigators find the cause of a New Year’s Eve fire that damaged five businesses in a strip mall.

The three-alarm fire burned into Tuesday morning at Academy Square, with flames shooting through the roof in places.

The department says the fire damaged a tax accountant’s office, meat market, nail shop, game shop and paint store.
