HANOI, Vietnam — A fire in a densely populated residential area of Hanoi early Friday killed at least 14 people and injured three others, police said.

Firefighters rescued seven people from the five-story building in a small alley, according to a statement from the Ministry of Public Security.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, and the victims have yet to be identified.

In September last year, a fire at an apartment block in Hanoi killed at least 56 people, including children, and injured 37 others.
