Albany - - A day after a fire caused $200,000 worth of damage at the Albany Flea Market, many vendors are ready to open up shop.

Today, crews cleaned up the damaged merchandise and the debris from the fire. Investigators believe someone set the fire at the flea market's headquarters early Thursday morning.

Several vendors were affected, but they've been working hard to get everything back to normal. Also several businesses donated items to the vendors who lost merchandise.  

"If it wasn't for the people that helped us, we'd be in bad shape right now. I've got all my stuff up back together and within 24 hours, we're back normal," says vendor Bruce Young.

Ace Refrigiration donated a new cooler to Young since the one he uses to store his produce was destroyed in the fire. Crews are hard at work to clean up all the debris because the flea market plans to be in business Saturday.
