French journalist Clément Lanot captured video of the fire on the ground at Marché International de Rungis produce market in Paris, France on Sunday, September 25, showing firefighters trying to control the flames.

In another video, the smoke can be seen all across Paris.

Apparently, the fire came from a warehouse that caught fire.

In a tweet, journalist Clément Lanot says “There is only one warehouse burning and firefighters are bringing the blaze under control. The flames are impressive, but not all of the International Market is on fire.”

The market “supplies the French capital and surrounding region with much of its fresh food and bills itself as the largest of its kind in the world”, according to the AP.

At this time, it is unknown what the cause of the fire was.
