BAC NINH (VNS) — Three people died and three others were seriously injured in a fire on Sunday night in the northern province of Bac Ninh's Thuan Thanh district's Dai Dong Thanh commune.
The fire started in a two-storey house used to make and sell votive papers. Owner Nguyen Van Ve, 52, his wife Vuong Thi Chinh and their three-year-old grandchild died, as they could not find any exit.
Ve's two children and another grandchild escaped but suffered serious injuries. They were brought to Ha Noi's Viet Nam-Germany Hospital and Bac Ninh Hospital.
Fire engines reached the scene in time but had difficulty accessing the house because it is in a small alley. — VNS
