The mishap which was first seen at 1:45 p.m. has gutted 58 huts, while another 28 huts were dismantled while bringing fire under control, informed Beldangi-based Armed Police Force (APF).

It took over an hour for three fire fighters, camp residents and APF personnel to contain fire, our reporters reported from the site.

Representatives from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), government of Nepal and other aid-agencies have reached the fire site for rescue and relief operations.

No human casualty has been reported. However, several refugees suffered minor injuries while containing the inferno.

According to one camp management committee members preparations were being made to arrange shelter for displaced ones in schools and huts owned by their relatives.
