LAM DONG — A fire destroyed a private nursery and two neighbouring houses on Hai Ba Trung Street in Don Duong District in the Central Highland Lam Dong Province at noon yesterday.
There were seven children aged between 18 months and five years at the nursery, where the fire broke out. The children detected a spark in an electrical socket and informed the adults there, which helped to ensure timely evacuation.
Local firefighters found it difficult to reach the site of the fire quickly as they had to travel about 40 km from Da Lat City. The fire was extinguished after almost two hours.
Initial investigation by the police showed that the fire was allegedly caused by an electrical fault. — VNS
