The fire was broken out at the Hoang Quan Building Material Warehouse at about 6:15 am on November 25.

After receiving the information, the Police Office of Fire Prevention and Fighting of Vinh city immediately sent its firefighters and vehicles to the scene.

In addition, the Vinh Municipal Military Command mobilized 35 troops and 50 militiamen to collaborate with the fire prevention and fighting police force in fighting the blaze.

Reportedly, the warehouse had a variety of flammable materials such as paint and petrol, so it was difficult for the firefighting forces to extinguish the blaze.

The firefighters and military troops had to mobilize numerous fire engines to prevent the blaze from spreading out while evacuating property and people living nearby to safe places.

By 8:15 a.m. on the same day, the fire was completely extinguished. The authorities are now investigating the cause of the blaze.
