Two members of a family were killed after falling from their burning flat on the 10th floor of an apartment building in Ho Chi Minh City early on Wednesday morning.

A fire broke out at an apartment on the 10th floor of Carillon 5 Apartment Complex on Luy Ban Bich Street in Hoa Thanh Ward, Tan Phu District at around 4:15 am, according to preliminary information.

Eyewitnesses said they heard an explosion prior to the blaze.

Officers under the firefighting and prevention police unit in Tan Phu District arrived at the location after being notified and managed to put out the flames after a few minutes.

However, two people in the apartment had already died after falling from their flat to the ground, with eyewitnesses saying that the heat from the fire forced them to climb out of the window.

The victims were identified as N.T.N.N., 42, and her daughter, 18-year-old N.T.N.M..
