HA NOI (VNS) — A fire that broke out in an apartment building in HCM City's District 5 yesterday evening destroyed a store and a costly motorbike.

According to a witness, at 10pm yesterday, he saw smoke coming out from a locked ground-floor apartment.

Although people made efforts to enter the apartment and douse the flames, they could not and had to wait until firefighters arrived.

The fire spread fast because of the presence of inflammable items, including notebooks, school accessories, and cotton toys, in the apartment.

As the fire spread, hundreds of occupants of the three-storey apartment building ran out into the open.

No casualties were reported.

Over 100 firefighting policemen from three nearby districts were mobilised to douse the fire.

The fire was extinguished after one hour.

The apartment had been rented out to a school accessory store for several years.
