NGHE AN (VNS)– Local authorities and scientists in the central province of Nghe An visited a residential property in Tan Ky District yesterday to determine the cause of apparent self combustion among several pieces of household furniture.

The items, found to have burst into flames last week, were reported to be located in different rooms of the house, according to the owner Nguyen Hoai Thanh.

The initial investigation found nothing abnormal with the items, but spontaneous combustion is said to be rare amongst household furniture. Samples of the burnt items were collected for analysis.

Even though local authorities have not yet finalised the investigation, they affirmed that the occurrence was not to be classified as a mysterious phenomenon.

Local residents are called to remain calm. —VNS
