QUANG NINH (VNS) — A fire which broke out on Wednesday night in Suoi Khoang Market, of northern Quang Ninh Province, has destroyed dozens of kiosks and caused huge losses to business owners.
The fire was fortunately put out quickly as firefighters arrived in time to the area.
There were no casualties or injuries as everyone was outside the market when the fire occurred, but the damage was estimated to be worth billions of dong.
People said the fire might have originated from a kiosk in the west corner of the market and spread to others nearby areas where there were many stalls with porous and plastic ceilings.
The blaze destroyed the entire electricity system, and the cause was still being investigated, authorities said.
The newly built Suoi Khoang was among the first private markets in Cam Pha city of Quang Ninh Province. —VNS
