The fire in Son Thanh commune was finally put under control by 9:30 p.m. the same day. However, it spread to parts of Nghi Van commune (Nghi Loc district) and Dien Loi commune (Dien Chau district) due to dry weather and strong wind. Fortunately, it was controlled by local military forces and people by 5:00 p.m. June 27.

The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.
