The fire reportedly started from the ground floor and many decided to save themselves before firefighters arrived.
At least two people broke their legs after they jumped down to escape a fire at a five-star hotel in the central province of Binh Thuan on Saturday morning.
More than 20 guests at the hotel were awoken by the fire alarm at around 5 a.m., when the fire broke out from the ground-floor parking lot.
“I opened the door and saw smoke filling up the hotel. Many people were screaming for help,” said a guest who was on the ground floor at the time.
He and several others laid out mattresses for people to jump from higher floors.
The guests then tried to escape.
A couple broke their legs during the attempt and has been sent to hospital.
Some people were rescued by firefighters later.
The fire was put out around one hour later.
