A three-alarm fire early Monday ravaged a hotel under construction in Milford, causing at least $1 million in damage and prompting the state Fire Marshal’s Office to declare the building a total loss.
The hotel — a Hampton Inn off Del. 1 near 10th Street — was scheduled to open in time for NASCAR race weekend in May, Chief Deputy State Fire Marshal B. Scott Bullock said.
