Vendors at the Musgrave Market in Portland are urging authorities to provide an update on the restoration of the market, which was ravaged by fire nearly seven months ago. With the holiday season approaching, concerns are growing among vendors. In May, parts of the market were destroyed by fire, initially sparking speculation of an arson attack. However, local government official Desmond McKenzie dismissed this after an investigation by the Jamaica Fire Brigade, JFB.
