We have seen these same kinds of ‘mysterious’ fires in holding camps in Europe for Muslim invaders posing as refugees. Now we see it in Bangladesh, the native country of thousands of Bengali (incorrectly known as ‘Rohingya’) Muslims, after they were driven out of Myanmar by the Burmese Buddhists for setting fires and engaging in violence and crime there. There is speculation that people from the Bangladeshi neighborhood of these camps set the fire, confirming that even their own fellow citizens don’t want them there.
Assist News (h/t Nita) The sprawling area of Rohingya refugee camps in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, has endured three big fires in the span of three months, leaving 75,000 homeless, hundreds injured, and missing, and many dead.
On 2 April 2021 in the early morning, a deadly fire broke out in Balukhali Camp 10, one of the many sections of the sprawling refugee camps located near Cox’s Bazar.

The fire started in a Rohingya shop and quickly spread to the other 15 closely packed stores. All the stores including the merchandise inside were burned completely to ash. There were five Rohingya people inside when the stores caught fire; three of them died and two were seriously injured.
On 19 March 2021 news of small fires were being reported but these would soon prove to be precursors to a large fire that occurred on 22 March 2021. This large fire devastated camp Balukhali, Camp 8w, part of the sprawling complex of camps in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. The fire started at 3 pm and was completely out of control until 8 pm that night.
MARCH 2021 fire
Approximately 10,000 shelters were completely destroyed leaving 85,000 thousand people homeless. There were a large number of children reported missing and the total number of lives lost in the fire has yet to be determined. In addition to the lives lost, market shops, schools, a mosque, a hospital, and food centers were all destroyed.
The police have arrested and charged several Bangladeshi youths for starting the fire. There is a feeling among the local community that the fires are being started with the intention of driving out the Rohingya. The FBR Rohingya team has been interviewing more individuals in an attempt to substantiate these claims.
We are going door to door and distributing goods in an effort to help those who have been affected by the fire. FBR is not the only NGO working to help those devastated and displaced by the fire: BD Red Crescent Society, IOM, World Vision, Plan International, MSF, Turkish Aid, and BRAC are providing food aid and tents.
