Vendors at the Ray Ray Ground Market in downtown, Kingston have reportedly lost millions following a fire early this morning.

They believe that the fire, which started about 4 a.m., may have been deliberately set.

The vendors say they are upset because there have been several fires at the facility over the years.

The Gleaner visited the market and hundreds of frustrated vendors vented their anger while trying to recover goods that were not badly burnt.

They say they have lost clothes, shoes, and food items.

Investigations continue.
