CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The West Side Market is expected to reopen on Monday, February 18.

A fire broke out at the popular market in January, and it's been shut down ever since.

The cause has baffled fire investigators as they have ruled it undetermined.

All inspections have been passed except one that still needs to be completed by the Ohio Health Department.

Cleveland city officials believe they're ready.

Vendors will spend the next few days restocking their shelves and coolers. Restoration crews have worked 24 hours a day to get the historic place ready.

The clean-up cost is $276,000.

The West Side Market has been open more than 100 years.

Last year, more than one million people stopped by to pick up some of their favorite foods, including President Obama who purchased some beef jerky.

The West Side Market is typically opened Mondays and Wednesdays 7 a.m. until 4 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays from 7 a.m. until 6 p.m.
