Market fire

PORT-AU-PRINCE — Dozens of stalls at the Port Market here were destroyed by a fire that swept through a portion of the popular marketplace where hundreds of vendors sold their wares.

Police spokesman Frantz Lerebours said the authorities are investigating what caused the fire late Friday.

So far 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. (CMC)
