A fire broke out in Keangnam Hanoi Landmark Tower, the tallest building in Vietnam, at 2:00 pm on August 27.
According to some workers who are working at the 7th floor of the building’s garage, the fire took place due to workers’ carelessness while installing air-conditioners here.
Right after being informed, firefighting forces were present at the scene to stamp out the fire.
According to initial information, the fire totally damaged three air-conditioners each worth VND1 billion.
Construction on Keangnam Tower, an investment of the Keangnam Group of the Republic of Korea, started in March 2007. The 336m-tall building, which includes two 48-storey blocks, ranks 17th in height and fifth in acreage in the world.
