14 dead in Vietnam residential building fire

At least 14 people have died and injured three others in a fire in a densely populated residential building in Hanoi, Vietnam.

The incident took place on Friday morning (May 14).

Firefighters managed to rescue seven people from the fire at a five-story building in a small alley in Vietnam's capital city, the Ministry of Public Security said in a statement.

The ministry said it is investigating the cause of the fire, whose victims are yet to be identified.

In September last year, a fire at an apartment block in Hanoi killed at least 56 people, among them children, and injured 37.
