Fire destroys Hopewell Township office building


An office building on Washington Crossing-Pennington Road “suffered fire, smoke and water damage,” according to the Hopewell Township Police Department.

Police officers responded to the Hubco Health Care Group’s office building at 3:10 a.m. July 25, following an alarm notification received by the police department.

When they arrived, police officers and firefighters from the Pennington Fire Co. found the building was fully engulfed in flames, police said.

Fire departments from Princeton and Hopewell, Ewing, Lawrence, Montgomery and West Amwell townships provided mutual aid in extinguishing the fire.

There were no injuries, police said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Hopewell Township Police Department and Hopewell Valley Emergency Services, but it does not appear to be suspicious in nature, police said.
