Mohammad Shakir, one of the residents of the camp said that about 230 people from the Rohingya community were staying in the camp. The fire was doused by around 6:50 am. No casualty was reported, however, one of the residents sustained burn injuries. It will be very hard for these people now as all they had, has been gutted in the fire. "Three cylinders also exploded during the rescue operation by police and fire department officials", said a police officer. Forty-six Rohingya families - 226 people - lived in the settlement, which is the only Rohingya camp in the city. "We have arranged for food for all the residents and informed authorities concerned about the situation", said Chinmoy Biswal, DCP (South-East). It added that the fire began at the back of the camp where the toilets are located. A preliminary report suggests that a short circuit might have been the reason.

According to the locals, the fire broke out around 3 am and gutted 46 shanties within half an hour. "Nothing could be saved - money, clothes, essential belongings or even our identity cards", said a camp resident. I lost Rs. 20,000 in cash that I had saved to buy an e-rickshaw.
