The government of Vietnam has awarded 'The Fatherland Acknowledges the Merit' Certificate to three firefighters for sacrificing their lives in an effort to extinguish an inferno at a karaoke parlor in Cau Giay District, Hanoi this week.

The decision was signed by Deputy Prime Minister Pham Binh Minh on Tuesday in recognition of the bravery of Colonel Dang Anh Quan -- the 45-year-old leader of the fire prevention and control team of the Cau Giay public security division -- 24-year-old Lieutenant Do Duc Viet, and 19-year-old corporal Nguyen Dinh Phuc. 

Earlier, State President Nguyen Xuan Phuc signed a decision posthumously conferring the First Class Victory Medal on the three officers. 

They were also posthumously promoted to higher rankings under a decision signed by Minister of Public Security To Lam on the same day.

Many leaders from the central to local administration levels and people across Vietnam extended their deepest condolences to the Vietnam People’s Public Security Forces and the bereaved families.

The three firefighters were killed while fighting a blaze and rescuing victims at a five-story karaoke bar building, which has been temporarily closed for repairs, in Cau Giay District on Monday.

It took functional forces more than eight hours to put out the fire.
