Firefighters were able to rescue three people after a fire broke out at a hotel in District 1, Ho Chi Minh City on Monday afternoon.

The ten-story hotel, located at 274 De Tham Street in District 1, caught fire at 1:46 pm.

As the high location of the flames was beyond local firefighting capabilities, three people were trapped on the eighth floor of the hotel and cried for help.
