The fire made three people, including two children, suffocated. All of them have been discharged from hospital.

It also destroyed three out of four classrooms of the Samaky-Tan Tien Primary School, thus affecting the study of over 100 students.

Minister at the Vietnamese Embassy Lai Xuan Chien said that the embassy is seeking aid to repair the school and resume its operation as soon as possible.

Before that, in January, three families of Vietnamese-Cambodians, whose houses were burnt down in a blaze in Phnom Penh’s Russey Keo district July 10 last year have received new houses.

The houses were built with the support of local authorities and financial assistance worth 150 million VND (about 6,400 USD) from donors./.
