Vendors Picking Up The Pieces After Flea Market Fire
Clean-up efforts are underway after a massive fire torched the Market of Marion flea market late Friday night taking out about 100 booths.
For some who made a living at the popular flea market, its back to square one. As clean-up crews started removing torched trailers, vendors who still had items to sell began moving to different parts of the market.
Because of high insurance costs, some vendors lost everything and are starting from scratch. One vendor whose computer repair business was lost is hoping the fire wasn't set on purpose. Over 15,000 square feet were destroyed in the blaze, but it will reopen as normal this weekend.
