Hundreds of Syrians flee refugee camp as blaze destroys site in Lebanon
Hundreds of Syrians have been forced to flee a refugee camp after a blaze raged through the site in Lebanon for hours. The fire has burned the entire camp to the ground, destroying tents that were housing families, officials said.
Four people have been taken to hospital with minor injuries following the blaze, Khaled Kabbara, a UN Refugee Agency spokesman in northern Lebanon, said. Some residents went back to the camp — an informal settlement on a plot of rented land — on Sunday to see if they could recover anything from the wreckage, he said.
