On the evening of October 22, a fabric production facility situated in the Hoc Mon district experienced a fierce fire. More than 50 soldiers were deployed to extinguish the flames. The fire completely consumed the 2,000 square meter wood factory.
Located in a residential area, the fabric factory became engulfed in smoke and fire on Pham Van Sang street, Xuan Thoi Thuong commune. Although the facility was closed at the time, nearby individuals attempted to put out the fire using mini fire extinguishers and water hoses. Unfortunately, their efforts were unsuccessful.
The fire rapidly spread throughout the entire factory, prompting some neighbouring households to evacuate as a precaution against the fire’s potential expansion. The residential area became filled with black smoke, and the sound of explosions resembling bombs could be heard.
11 fire engines and over 60 soldiers were deployed to the scene. The firefighters divided into multiple teams, each pulling water hoses in various directions to extinguish the fire and prevent its spread. As a safety measure, power to the entire area was cut off. By 11:30 p.m., the fire was largely under control. Fortunately, there were no casualties, although the fire did cause significant damage to goods and machinery.
