Sharing some words of comfort, Dung said their bravery gains people’s admiration and respect. At the same time, functional forces are required to investigate the cause of the fire and strictly handle fire prevention violations in the case.

The tragic accident has triggered a huge outpouring of grief expressions from the public, especially after the photo of Do Duc Viet in firefighting uniforms with a dog he saved was posted on the Internet.

A flurry of condolences was sent to the fire police, including a sympathy message by President Nguyen Xuan Phuc.

On the same day, Deputy Minister of Public Security Nguyen Van Long worked with Cau Giay District’s Police on the case.

A day after the case, Public Security Minister To Lam signed a decision posthumously promoting the police officers Dang Anh Quan to senior colonel, Do Duc Viet to lieutenant, and Nguyen Dinh Phuc to corporal.
