Fire consumes a part of a Vietnamese market in Brno


A large first broke out at an Asian market in the Černovice district of the Moravian capital Brno. The fire started just after midnight on Monday and was eventually given the highest level of fire alert, by the Brno fire brigade. No one was hurt, but the damages are estimated to be as much as five million crowns. It took 80 fire fighters from 15 fire brigades to get the blaze under control by nine o’clock in the morning. The burned down building was right next to another in the market that had been victim to a massive fire last year. So far it remains unknown how the fire had started.
