ĐỒNG NAI — The death toll from the fire that broke out at a restaurant on Friday in the southern province of Đồng Nai rose to seven after the latest victim died on Sunday.

Nguyễn Văn Dũng, 24, was the only one to be rescued from the fire at the Ruby restaurant in Xuân Hòa Ward, Long Khánh Town on Friday afternoon. However, he died at Đồng Nai General Hospital on Sunday morning, the hospital announced.

The fire allegedly occurred when a group of welders and workers were installing a styrofoam ceiling and soundproof material at the restaurant. The flammable materials caught fire and the blaze spread quickly.

Seven people including the restaurant owner and the welders got trapped in the fire, with six of them dying on the spot. — VNS
