WILMINGTON, OH (FOX19) -

Caesar Creek Flea Market has undergone a total renovation and is now open for business after a large fire that broke out over nine months ago.

Visitors to the Flea Market will find hundreds of vendors and merchants doing business in 125,000 square feet of completely new retail space.

A devastating fire struck the Flea Market on March 16, 2012, forcing all of the indoor vendors and merchants out of their retail space while the entire flea market was completely renovated.

"It has been a long journey since the fire on March 16th, but a journey that the loyal vendors of Caesar Creek Flea Market have walked with strength, determination and the most amazing positive attitudes," said Greg Dove, President of Levin Service Company, parent company of Caesar Creek. "Many of these vendors located their businesses inside Caesar Creek Flea Market 20 to 30 years ago. They are the backbone of this Market and this Community, and it's good to see them back in business in their completely remodeled retail space in the Roman-Themed Flea Market."

An electrical fire destroyed only about 8 percent of the structure, but the smoke reached every corner of each of the seven buildings and the main aisle requiring the entire structure to be completely gutted and renovated.

A grand reopening is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 5 and 6.
