One person was killed and another was injured after a fire erupted at a hotel in Ho Chi Minh City early Friday morning.

People inside the hotel and local residents tried to put out the blaze but the situation spiraled out of control.

Tens of firefighting officers and many fire engines were dispatched to the scene and they eventually extinguished the fire.

A 12-square-meter room and many assets were burned down.
