Firefighters successfully rescued two elders with paralysis after a blaze broke out at a house in Go Vap District, Ho Chi Minh City on Friday afternoon.

Police in Go Vap District are investigating the cause of the fire.

Local residents at an alley down Nguyen Van Bao Street in Ward 4 of Go Vap District noticed the fire from the house of Truong Thi Luy, 95, at around 12:45 pm on Friday.

After local rescue efforts failed, many firefighters and fire engines were dispatched to the scene.

The fire was completely extinguished at 1:00 pm.

Firefighters also managed to rescue Luy and her 73-year-old son-in-law Bui Van Hoang, both of whom were paralyzed and stuck inside the burning house.

Luy was then taken to Military Hospital 175 in the same district for treatment for suspected burns while Hoang’s health was not affected.

The functional forces determined that the flammable substances in the case were mainly household items.
