LÂM ĐỒNG — A fire broke out early on Wednesday at a timber workshop in a crowded residential area in Lâm Đồng Province’s Thạnh Mỹ township, destroying all the wooden products inside.
Locals tried to extinguish the fire but failed due to presence of flammable wooden products. The province’s Fire Prevention and Fighting Force mobilised three fire fighting trucks to prevent the blaze from spreading to the residential area.
The fire was finally put out two hours later. All the machines and wooden products inside the workshop were completely burnt. Property damage was estimated at VNĐ500 billion (US$22,000).
The cause of the fire is under investigation. — VNS
