    Fire swept through a shopping centre last night in the Laotian capital of Vientiane, Three large shops were completely gutted despite the efforts of all Fire Brigades in the city.

    It was the worst fire in Vientiane for many years. Damage is estimated at Millions of Kip. A large crowd gathered to watch firemen trying to prevent the fl???mos from spreading. The premises were mostly owned by Indian merchants; they ???tily removed much of their stock onto the sidewalks, but much of this was damaged by smoke and water. Three large buildings were completely gutted before the blaze was brought under control. The Vientiane City Fire Brigade was assisted by units belonging to the United States Aid Mission to Laos.
