A second fire broke out in a Rohingya camp in Cox's Bazar on Saturday night, burning down more than one hundred houses.
The fire occurred in Kutupalang's Rohingya refugee camp no 5 within days after a fire broke out in Kutupalong Lambashia Rohingya camp in Ukhia upazila.
MD Obaydullah, deputy secretary and in-charge of Kutupalang Rohingya refugee camp no 5, confirmed this.
He informed that fire fighters brought the fire under control.
He said, "More than one hundred houses and some educational institutions run by NGO's burnt down before the fire fighters could reach the spot."
He, however, could not say how the first started.
MD Jalil, worker of Ukhiya fire service said, "Fire fighters went to the camp soon after they heard of it. Dwellers from the camp and the fire services workers brought the fire under control together."
Earlier on May 12, a total of 312 makeshift houses and 37 shops were burnt by a fire at Kutupalong Lambashia Rohingya camp in Ukhia upazila.
