Hanoi authorities Tuesday shut down a popular recreation complex on Tran Thanh Tong Street after a fire killed six people there two weeks earlier.
The Hanoi People's Committee, the municipal administration, ordered Binh An Investment and Development Joint Stock Company, the owner of Zone 9, an abandoned factory which became a rage among youngsters for its decrepit look, to stop all activities in the complex.
It also instructed the police and relevant authorities to wrap up investigations into the fire which broke out in a bar on November 19 and act against those responsible.
Six workers were suffocated to death in the fire, allegedly started by welders working to restore the bar.
Zone 9 is situated on a piece of land measuring more than 11,000 square meters in Hai Ba Trung District.
The building was recently restored and housed bars, coffee shops, and photo studios.
In September a woman and a man in their 20s were injured after falling from the fourth to the third floor while posing for a photo and leaning against a wall which collapsed.
