Fire ravages night market in southern Vietnam

VOV.VN - Fire destroyed 20 kiosks and stalls in the early morning hours of July 3 at a night market in the southern Vietnam Mekong Delta province of Kien Giang, but caused no injuries, reported the Vietnam News Agency.

Flames swiftly swept through the night market in the town of Duong Dong in the Phu Quoc District after an electrical short apparently triggered it at around 4am. Firefighters took about 30 minutes to extinguish the blaze.

Fire officials said the entire stock of merchandise of roughly 20 vendors was destroyed by the fire with losses estimated in the tens of thousands of US dollars. Local provincial authorities are considering ways to help compensate the victims for their losses.
