PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — A massive fire in Haiti's capital has ravaged a portion of a popular marketplace where hundreds of vendors sold their wares.
Police spokesman Frantz Lerebours said Saturday that dozens of stalls at the Port Market in Port-au-Prince were burned to the ground and that few items were recovered. He said authorities are investigating what caused the fire late Friday.
He says there are no reports of deaths or injuries.
The same market was destroyed in April 2010 just months after a devastating earthquake killed an estimated 300,000 people and left hundreds of thousands more homeless. Vendors at that time said the fire was politically motivated, although police never determined the cause.
