Again, fire outbreak hits Muna IDP camp in Maiduguri

Hundreds of persons have been rendered homeless again after a fire outbreak razed down an internally displaced persons’ camp in Mafa Local Government Area of Borno State on Wednesday, sources said.

This is coming just weeks after the same Muna Al-Barnawi IDP camp in Maiduguri was burnt down. The incident, which occurred two weeks ago, caused the destruction of over 3,000 shelters.

It was gathered that the fire started after 12 noon and destroyed an unspecified number of IDPs’ temporary homes.

A humanitarian source told our correspondent that the fire burnt down foodstuff and other valuable items.

“We are yet to know the cause of the fire but more than hundreds of temporary shelters were destroyed. We are working on it now,” the source said.

It was learnt that the fire was put out about an hour later by men of the Borno State Fire Service.
