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.
