Seven people, including four children, suffered severe burns after a young man poured gasoline over his body and a group of people and set them on fire at a boarding house in Long Thanh District, Dong Nai Province on Saturday due to romantic jealousy.

After the incident occurred at about 6:00 am., neighbors put out the fire and took the victims to medical centers in Phu My Town, Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province, a neighbor of Dong Nai.

The patients were later transferred to large hospitals in Ho Chi Minh City.

Representatives of hospitals in Ho Chi Minh City which are treating the patients told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper on Saturday that many of the burned patients are in critical condition.

Doctor Ngo Hong Phuc, deputy head of the quality control unit at Children's Hospital 2, said the hospital admitted two children, aged 13 and 15.

They sustained burns on 60 percent of their bodies, mainly on their heads, faces, and necks, and currently need endotracheal intubation.

Meanwhile, Cho Ray Hospital received three patients in the jealousy case.

Two of them suffered burns on 90 percent of their bodies.

As for the remaining case, burns covered 10 percent of her body but she faced respiratory burns.

A representative of Ho Chi Minh City-based Children's Hospital 1 said on Saturday that the hospital was providing medical treatment for two other children who also suffered severe burns.

They are put on ventilators and in critical condition.

The case is under investigation, the Dong Nai police said.
