A large fire has devastated the Grande-Synthe migrant camp outside the northern French city of Dunkirk, reducing it to “a heap of ashes”, a regional official has said.
Firefighters said at least 10 people had been injured on Monday night in the blaze at the camp, which was home to between 1,000 and 1,500 people living in closely packed wooden huts.
“There is nothing left but a heap of ashes,” said Michel Lalande, the prefect of France’s Nord region, at the site. “It will be impossible to put the huts back where they were before.”
