Police in Ho Chi Minh City have suspended the operations of two popular karaoke parlors over violations of fire safety regulations.

The Department of Fire Prevention and Rescue Police (PC07) under the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Public Security confirmed it had inspected the fire safety system of Kingdom karaoke bar on Pham Viet Chanh Street in District 1 and Nnice karaoke parlor on Nguyen Thi Minh Khai Street in District 3.

The examination revealed that both facilities had many violations of fire safety regulations, namely unsafe use and installation of electrical wires, use of potentially combustible material to decorate walls and ceilings, and failure to establish firefighting plans, among others.

Officers required the two karaoke parlors to shut down for one month to deal with the shortcomings in fire prevention and control.

The police unit in District 1 and District 3 will be in charge of supervising the two venues during this period.

Such businesses as karaoke parlors, discos, and bars must satisfy all conditions on fire prevention and control in order to operate sustainably and safely in the long run, according to Colonel Huynh Quang Tam, head of PC07.

Starting October, police officers in Ho Chi Minh City have been inspecting fire safety systems of local karaoke venues, discos, and bars to make sure there are no violations.
