AUGUSTA, Ga---Richmond County fire investigators say the cause of the fire that destroyed much of the South Augusta flea market is still undetermined.

Demolition crews were out Tuesday morning cleaning up piles of burnt rubble from the May 7th fire that destroyed the main building.

Many of the vendors plan to reopen their shops this weekend. They say they will temporarily set up on wooden tables until the main market building is reconstructed.

Some of the vendors say they lost more than $100,000 worth of merchandise in the fire.
