Large fire erupts in Dudley Square

A four-alarm fire heavily damaged a clothing store in Dudley Square and forced the evacuation of a neighboring apartment building.

The Boston Fire Department reports the fire at 2365 Washington St., called in around 5:45 p.m., did an estimated $300,000 to the one-story commercial building. All of the apartment-building residents were evacuated safely.

Investigators are still trying to determine the cause.

Gee, Swirl!

considering the amount of time you spend on this site,who is the troll again?

And I'm not faulting Gaffin, he has mouths to feed and those bike posts bring the clicks in. Dead black kids in neighborhoods that don't have artisinal anything just don't seem to affect the average U-Hubber in terms of response posts.

Fact, not trolling.

Silver Slipper

Hopping the Silver Slipper survives this one (looks like the fire is the other end of the block, but still...). The new building behind where the fire is went up in the past few years -- all wooden structure, no elevator 5 floors -- hoping that doesn't go up.

Name of clothing store?

Do you know the name of the store that burned?

(Somehow, I knew nothing about this despite being a few blocks away at First Church in Roxbury while it happened.)

I think it's this place - Drain's House of Style (for him and her),-71.0853721,3a,90y,60.03h,95.01t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1snwRnKx9-vepAE2HrOIb7xg!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?hl=en

I went by about 6:10 this evening, turning left from Washington Street northbound onto Dudley/Malcom X westbound. Looking as I turned, most of the apparata seemed to be surrounding this block, including one of the ladder units, and smoke billowing from/over the top of the taller building (though not clear to me then where the fire actually was)
