The boats with all their fishing equipment were completely burnt down.
Firefighters from Khanh Hoa Province took three hours to bring the fire under control.
According to the Management Committee of the Hon Ro fishing port, since 2009 they boats were being used to haul and sell bluefin tuna. However, a while back because the company was losing money it stopped running the boats and kept them anchored at port.
Police are investigating the cause of the fire.
