After receiving the information, the Fire Prevention and Fighting Police Department of Lang Son and local polices sent firefighters and fire trucks to the scene. 

Because cargoes and materials inside the market were easily ignited, rescuers suffered difficulties for localizing the fire.

By two hours late, functional forces extinguished the blaze, and began to investigate reasons of the fire.

The fire completely destroyed more than 10 kiosks and a warehouse in the area of Tan Thanh border gate market.

Fortunately, no one was killed and injured in the fire.
