Traditional market in Legian catches fire

A traditional market in Legian, Bali went aflame earlier this afternoon. 

The market is made up of five rows—one main building has burned down in the back/ middle of the market, reports say. 

Firefighters from the Badung Fire Department were still busy dousing out flames as of Tribun Bali’s breaking news report on Wednesday evening. 

The cause of the fire is not yet clear. 

A couple of photos, not yet verified, have been posted to Instagram, apparently of today’s flames and their damage:

Along with this very emotional video. (Warning: You can hear the pain in the woman’s cries. Only watch if you’re prepared for that sort of intensity.)
