The fire broke out at around 9:30 a.m. at the District K bar at 30 Thu Khoa Huan Street, about 50 meters from the northern gate of Ben Thanh Market, HCMC’s most popular tourist hotspot.

Nearly 10 fire trucks were sent to the site.

A policeman said the bar’s interiors comprise soundproofing materials, foams and sofas, making it difficult to put out the fire.
