Firefighters were battling a massive fire that erupted at a Taiwan-based Kwong Lung’s Meko Garment Company, which specializes in feather processing and garment manufacturing, in southern city of Can Tho in Vietnam on the morning of 23 March. Although no casualties have been reported as yet, there are reports of goods being destroyed. Officials said they had requested support from the regional army to control the fire.

The fire started on the top floor of the five-story building, forcing large numbers of workers to flee, said a VnExpress reporter. The fire has destroyed everything in the workshops and we are still not sure of the extent of the damage, said a Taiwanese executive. “When I went inside, everything was ruined,” he added.

Hundreds of firefighters and dozens of fire engines arrived at the scene to prevent the fire from spreading. By noon, the building was still covered in black smoke that could be seen from about 3 kilometres distance. “Four hours after the fire broke out, the flames were still raging,” said Nguyen Van Tuan, a district official.
