QUANG BINH -- A fire burnt down an entire communal market in the central province of Quang Binh this morning, causing damages of VND3 billion (US$143,000).

The blaze started at a clothing shop at Quang Son Commune Market before spreading to about 20 other shops inside the market and dozens of booths outside.

The communal People's Committee deputy chairman Tran Dinh Suu said a trader discovered the fire at 5am when arriving to open his shop.

Although firefighters arrived 30 minutes after and put out the fire in one hour, the entire market and its goods could not be saved.

Initial investigation indicate that the fire may have beeb caused by the market's electrical system.--VNS
