HUNG YEN (VNS)— The two-storey Pho Hien Market in the northern province of Hung Yen was completely gutted by a fire yesterday, destroying the livelihoods of many small vendors.

The market had opened after renovation less than two months ago and the fire has inflicted damage of several billion dong, local reports said.

The province rushed five fire engines to the market, but the fire continued to rage even after an hour of fire-fighting operations. Assistance was then sought from fire-fighting departments of Hai Duong and Ha Nam provinces that neighbour Hung Yen.

No casualties have been reported so far, and an investigation has been launched, officials said. — VNS
