Popular flea market in Canton burns

- Fire crews have contained a fire at a popular flee market in Van Zandt County.

The Mountain is located in Canton, east of Dallas. It went up in flames around 1 a.m. Saturday and burned for about three hours.

It’s not yet clear just how many buildings were destroyed, but at last check the fire had burned at least five acres.

DPS troopers reopened Highway 64 around 8 a.m. They had it shut down earlier during the fire.

In November of 2013, the same area was damaged by a fire. That time about 10 percent of the trade site was destroyed and about two dozen people had to be rescued.
