HA NOI (VNS) — Five persons, including two elderly and one child, were killed in a huge blaze that destroyed a house in alley 190 of Hoang Mai Road, Hoang Mai District, Ha Noi, early this morning.

All the victims belonged to a 10-member family that lived in the house.

Five other persons, who lived on the house's second floor, luckily escaped through a window, thank to the efforts of the neighbours.

Witnesses said the flames rose and spread rapidly. The house was located in a very small alley, which made it difficult for the firefighters to stamp out the blaze.

The authorities are investigating the cause of the blaze. — VNS
