The fire did not result in casualties or injuries, according to the local press.
Thousands of asylum seekers reside on the island of Mudlili, waiting to obtain permits allowing them to cross to the target countries or those designated by the European Union.
Greek human rights organizations and associations express concern about the fate of thousands of refugees in light of their exposure to the harsh winter cold, and the government’s failure to provide them with humanitarian aid.
