Blaze Destroys Market in Haitian Capital

PORT-AU-PRINCE – The marche du Port, one of the largest markets in the Haitian capital, was destroyed by a fire that broke out in the wee hours, authorities said on Tuesday.

The Port-au-Prince fire department battled for hours without being able to completely extinguish the flames and the blaze was ultimately brought under control with help from the army, volunteers, and firefighters from other departments.

Calling the fire “regrettable,” Port-au-Prince Ralph Youri Chevry acknowledged to EFE that the municipal fire department has limited capability to deal with blazes of such magnitude.

He said that authorities would investigate the origin of the fire and vowed his administration would do everything possible to help the affected merchants.

Two other major markets in Port-au-Prince burned down within days of each other in November.
