TAGS: Migration, Fires

A fire broke out late Wednesday near the migrant hotspot on the eastern Aegean island of Samos.

Efforts to contain the fire were hampered by strong winds, but firefighters were finally able to bring the blaze under control.

A former prison, the camp was originally laid out for 700 people, but currently houses more than 2,200 migrants.
