A family from Hau Giang Province in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta has been extremely worried after multiple objects inside their house spontaneously caught fire.
The situation took place at the house of Nguyen Van Ba in Hiep Hung Commune, Phung Hiep District, Hau Giang Province.
Nguyen Van Mung, Ba’s son, said that the situation has been going on for nearly a week.
Some laundry hung on the rack ignited for unknown reasons on Friday morning, Mung elaborated, adding that the water valve and bath sponge inside the bathroom also combusted a few days ago.
“We were so worried that we had to move out into the yard and take turns keeping watch,” Mung continued.
“We hope competent authorities can help us determine the reason and solve this problem.”
Huynh Van Ut, chairman of the People’s Committee in Hiep Hung Commune, told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper that police officers had arrived at Ba’s house but had not been able to figure out the reason behind the phenomenon.
Authorities advised the family to open all doors and windows, and move flammable objects out of the house to ensure safety while waiting for a professional agency to carry out further examinations.
Chairman Ut said that this is the first time this situation has happened in the locality, adding that it was recorded at Ba’s house only.
