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.
