Child Killed in Lebanese Refugee Camp Fire

A young girl died and several people were injured Tuesday when a massive fire broke out at a refugee camp in Lebanon.

It was the second such deadly fire to hit refugee encampments in eastern Lebanon this week amid soaring temperatures. On Sunday, a fire ripped through a settlement near the town of Qab Elias, also killing one person.

That fire destroyed all but three of the camp's 193 tents.

Lebanon's state-run National News Agency said that in Tuesday's fire, 22 of the 185 tents in the informal settlement burned down.

It was unclear what caused the fire.

Lebanon is host is to more than 1 million Syrian refugees, though the government says the number is closer to 1.5 million, most of whom live in informal tented settlements in the Bekaa Valley.
