The district's Firefighting Police Division joined colleagues from the park's division without delay. Forces were also mobilized from neighbouring districts, including Tan Phu, Hoc Mon and Cu Chi.

The fire may have been started due to a short circuit, according to police who are investigating.

None of the company's 8,000 workers were injured, as only a few staff worked in the building at night.
