HALLTOWN, WV (AP) -

Fire officials are investigating a flea market fire in Jefferson County that caused more than $1 million in damage.

Media outlets report that the fire damaged several units at the Route 340 Indoor Flea Market complex in Halltown. No one was injured.

Friendship Fire Company chief Donald Dunn says the Friday night fire began in an auto repair shop. He says three units in the complex are total losses, and several others sustained smoke damage.

The fire displaced several families who were living in apartments in the complex.

Dunn says the cause of the fire hasn't been determined.
