PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — A fire has engulfed much of a popular marketplace in Haiti's capital where hundreds of impoverished vendors sell their wares.
The flames have destroyed numerous wooden stalls and a warehouse storing inventory including fabrics and used clothes.
There are no reports of deaths or injuries.
Despondent vendors at Port-au-Prince's sprawling Croix de Boussales market are picking through the ashes Monday looking for anything to salvage.
The blaze started sweeping through the market late Sunday. The cause isn't immediately known.
