HÀ NỘI — Six people have been led to safety after a major fire broke out at a high-rise apartment building Hà Đông District of Hà Nội Friday afternoon.

Firefighters spent 30 minutes tackling the blaze and prevented the fire from spreading.

The fire didn’t result in any casualties.

At about 4:45pm, the fire suddenly broke out on the 18th floor of CT3 building of Bắc Hà apartment building, Mỗ Lao Ward of Hà Đông District. Black smoke quickly engulfed the building and threatened to ravage adjacent floors, trapping several panicked residents inside.
