Massive blaze guts 60 homes of Vietnamese in Cambodia
Vietnam's foreign ministry is cooperating with Cambodian authorities to resolve consequences from a massive fire early on Tuesday.

A fire that broke out early on Tuesday in Phnom Penh destroyed the homes of 60 Vietnamese-Cambodian families and 10 Khmer families.

The fire, which occurred at 3 a.m. in Russey Keo District, lasted until the morning, but there were no casualties, Vietnam's foreign ministry said in a statement.

Initial investigation has led to speculation that the fire was caused by an electrical fault in one of the destroyed houses, the Khmer Times reported.

Vietnam's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said it has sent donors' aids to the affected families and said it would cooperate with authorities to resolve the fire's consequences.
