In The Region:

The clean-up of soot from last month’s fire that closed Cleveland’s historic  West Side Market should wrap-up tomorrow morning. But city spokeswoman Maureen Harper says it will probably be another week and a half before it reopens. She says the next steps will involve several city departments.

“We will have the health department check (that) all the vendors' surfaces, coolers and equipment are completely cleaned and sanitized. The Building and Housing Department will do a final inspection to make sure the building is OK. The fire department will do an inspection. And we know the vendor will need some time to prepare their stalls to reopen after the city says they can return.”

The inside of the building where meat and baked goods are sold has been closed since Jan. 30th when the fire started in one of those stalls. Many vendors say this is the longest the market has been closed in its 100-year history.

Since the fire broke out, most of the outside produce stands that line two sides of the building have remained open.
