Eastern Market Fire Hits Food Vendors Hardest

The fire that swept through historic Eastern Market early this morning most seriously damaged the South Hall, home to numerous food vendors and the popular Market Lunch.

According to The Washington Post, Mayor Adrian Fenty said the city will try to find the cheese, meat and produce sellers a temporary home while the market is repaired.

Footage from Fox5 shows charred food display cases, black debris littering the floor and damage to the ceiling.

Luckily no one was in the building at the time of the fire, according to reports.
