NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH)– The roads officially re-opened to traffic near what used to be Delaney’s pub in New Haven.

A fire broke out Monday night just after 6:00, completely destroying the restaurant on the 800 block of Whalley Avenue. Crews demolished what was left of it earlier in the week. All the roads were cleared near Whalley Avenue just after 11 Thursday morning.
