Firefighters have been battling a blaze at a commercial centre housing 4000 shops and stalls in Burma for more than 18 hours.
Mingalar Zay, a five-storey market complex in Yangon, burst into flames around 8 am local time.
80 firetrucks were sent to the scene to try and put out the blaze.
Shops and stock have been damaged but there are no reports of injuries or deaths.
Shop owners say the fire was started by the overheating of a battery charger on the fourth floor.
