MILTON, W.Va. (AP) - A fire has destroyed a building at the Milton Flea Market.

Media outlets report flames and thick, black smoke were seen coming from the Cabell County market Friday morning.

Milton Police Chief Chuck Zerkle says the 8 a.m. fire was contained to a building in the middle of the market. That building was a total loss.

No injuries were reported.

Traffic along nearby U.S. Route 60 was blocked while fire crews from four departments responded.

A 2008 fire at the market destroyed another building that housed 300 booths run by about 130 vendors. The market reopened a year later.
