A fire burned down a two-story wedding studio in Phu Nhuan District, Ho Chi Minh City on Sunday night while another conflagration broke out at a 1,000-square-meter warehouse next to the dormitory of the Ho Chi Minh City University of Education in District 11 and spread to the dorm early Monday morning.

Both of the incidents caused no casualties.

The fire ignited the wedding studio on Ho Van Hue Street in Phu Nhuan District at around 7:00 pm on Sunday.

Staff members immediately alerted each other and escaped the two-story building before the blaze grew and quickly engulfed the facility.

As local efforts to put out the fire with fire extinguishers failed, firefighters arrived at the scene and doused it.

Properties inside the studio were completely destroyed while the wall of the adjacent house was also damaged by smoke and fire.

The fire spread to the dorm shortly after.
