Syrian refugee camp gutted by fire which destroyed almost every tent

A refugee camp housing Syrians who fled the civil war has been gutted by fire, with almost all of the tents destroyed.

At least one person died after the flames broke out today, sending plumes of black smoke into the sky.

‘The settlement has turned to ashes. Even the iron melted,’ emergency worker Ahmed Salloum said on Sunday.

He said firefighters tried to contain the fire after it broke out around midday, but they couldn’t stop the spread with temperatures soaring in Lebanon’s Bekaa region, where the camp was built near Qab Elias town.
