Thousands of people were left homeless in a fire on block E-8 of Camp Ukiya, home to Arakanese Muslims, in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, this afternoon.

The fire was brought under control after eight hours of extinguishing efforts with the help of firefighters from Cox’s Bazar and surrounding provinces, as well as members of the military. Strong winds during the fire made it difficult to contain the fire.

A total of 9,600 homes were burned in the fire, Bangladesh Deputy Commissioner for Refugee Aid and Repatriation Operations Samsuddauja Nayan said in a statement. But we still see the fire rising from some places. Our fire brigade and other crews are still working. So far, 9,600 houses have been burned in the fire.”

Ukiya Governor Nizam Uddin Ahmed said in a statement, “It is not easy to control this situation, which occurs suddenly. More than 30,000 people are homeless today. We’re trying to move them. We also serve food.”

Mohammed Abdullah, one of the leaders of Arakanese Muslims, said in a statement, “People were unable to get anything out of their homes because the fire spread so fast. All these people’s savings were burned in the fire today. They stayed outdoors. It’s unclear what will happen tomorrow. God help us.”

Several people were injured in the fire and there were no casualties, officials said. The cause of the fire is not yet known.

Informative, but not convincing. Something is missing, and what I do not understand. But, frankly: – bright and benevolent thoughts.
