Update: Two Alarm Fire Destroys The Tradesman in Milford

A popular music club southwest of Boston has been hit by a fire.

According to a message sent to us on Facebook, The Tradesman in Milford caught fire today, with the West Street spot appearing to sustain major damage in the blaze. Sources tell us that the building turned out to be a total loss and has been razed, and while there is chatter that it may be rebuilt, it doesn't appear that anything has been decided for sure as of yet.

The Tradesman has been a place to go for local music while also offering food such as burgers, clam chowder, wings, hot dogs, and subs along with beer, wine, and spirits.

The address for The Tradesman is 284 West Street (Route 140), Milford, MA, 01757. Its Facebook page can be found at
