Four people in a family in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta province of Kien Giang were killed when their fabric store caught fire on Monday, local authorities confirmed.

The blaze broke out and intensified at the fabric store, located within a traditional market in Kien Luong Town under Kien Luong District, before spreading to four neighboring houses.

Stranded people could not find a way out due to the conflagration.

The victims were identified as the store owner Nguyen Ngoc Yen, 32, her husband Nguyen Duy Tan, 36, and their two children.

Upon hearing the case, functional forces rushed to the scene to extinguish the fire, according to Nguyen Trong Lam, chairman of the Kien Luong Town People's Committee.

The amount of property damage is currently being determined while an investigation into the cause of the incident is underway, Lam added.
