Residents at Tak province’s Ban Nu Pho refugee camp in Tambon Mae Chan, Umphang district flee their homes in panic as a fire breaks out on Monday afternoon, damaging 50 wooden shacks in the process.

As firefighters and volunteers battled the blaze, many of the 10,000 people who had sought refuge in the camp moved out their belongings, along with children and ailing elderly, to safer spots.

Police are now investigating the cause of this fire, which occurred at 1.40pm and was extinguished by 3.10pm.
