Migrants without shelter after fire destroys French refugee camp
A huge fire ripped through a migrant camp in northern France late Monday razing it to the ground and leaving several people injured, CNN reports.
Large numbers of migrants and refugees -- including unaccompanied children -- have been left homeless, according to an aid agency.
The fire, which destroyed wooden shelters at the Linière camp in Grande-Synthe on the outskirts of Dunkirk, began with a fight amid tense and overcrowded conditions, said a spokeswoman for the prefect of the Nord region of France
"It all started with a fight between the Afghans and the Kurds. They argued about their territory and their personal space. They wanted to control their territory," she said.
