Around 30 shanties including mosques have been gutted by the fire while the blaze spread to dozens of tents in Kutupalong of Cox's Bazar’s Ukhia upazila

A second fire in less than a week occurred early morning Sunday in cramped Rohingya settlements in Bangladesh’s southern district of Cox’s Bazar, according to authorities.

The fire started from a kitchen stove in a house of the camp at about 1am at the Kutupalang’s Rohingya refugee camp-05, the largest of total 34 camps, according to the UNO’s office.

“Around 30 shanties including mosques, education and health centres have been gutted by the fire while the blaze spread to dozens of adjacent tents,” said Md Obaidullah, deputy secretary and also the in charge of the camp.

“Two units of fire services rushed to the spot on information instantly and doused the fire with the help of Rohingya camp dwellers and no injuries have been reported yet, said a local fire station official Mohammad Jalil.

Earlier on May 12, a fire gutted 362 makeshift houses and 60 shops at Kutupalong Lambashia Rohingya camp in Ukhia upazila.
