Together with the Masovian Voivode, Mariusz Frankowski, we met with the authorities of the company that owned the hall at ul. Marywilska. We have received confirmation that the company is determined to rebuild the hall as soon as possible, wrote the mayor of Warsaw, Rafał Trzaskowski, on social media. He added that together they are looking for solutions that would save as many jobs as possible.

“It is crucial to establish the facts, including how many entrepreneurs are able to continue their operations, i.e. how many stands would be needed immediately. The proposal to provide stands at city markets is still on the table, we are also looking for alternative options. We are in talks with merchants' representatives” – wrote Trzaskowski.

He emphasized that he was glad that in this difficult situation, all parties were acting responsibly and looking for solutions together.

Mirbud, the owner of Marywilska 44, has already announced that the hall will be rebuilt. He also informed that the assets of the Marywilska 44 company were insured.

Support for the injured

On Monday, Masovian Voivode Mariusz Frankowski noted that he was looking for possible support with special measures for merchants affected by the fire on Marywilska Street. He emphasized that disaster relief payments were not an option because the fire did not affect private individuals.

The Mayor of Warsaw, Rafał Trzaskowski, said on Monday that due to the fire in the market hall at Marywilska Street, the city was looking for additional places at city markets. There are over a hundred of them. He also said that a special point had been opened for the injured at Marszałkowska 77/79.
