Firefighters reached the scene shortly after alarms went off. Crews say the blaze took just under an hour to bring under control. Investigators are still determining the cause.

The An Phu karaoke bar, located in the Binh Duong region just north of the city, occupied a significantly sized building with 29 rooms.

About a third of the building had been on fire, local officials said. It had several decorations and wooden decor, BBC Vietnamese reported.

This is not the first time a fire has broken out at a karaoke bar in Vietnam. Last month, three firefighters died after trying to extinguish a fire at a karaoke venue in the capital Hanoi.
