About a third of the building had been on fire, local officials said.
It had been decorated with several decorations and wooden decor,
This is not the first time a fire has broken out at a karaoke bar in Vietnam. Last month, three firefighters died after trying to extinguish a fire at another karaoke bar in Hanoi.
