More than 300 people lost their homes after a fire destroyed a large sector of the Nai Soi refugee camp, also known as Karenni Refugee Camp (1), in northern Thailand last week. No casualties were reported. According to a SHAN report, the cause of the fire was unknown.Nai Soi was originally established on the Karenni State side of the border in 1989 to house villagers fleeing conflict in eastern Myanmar. The camp was relocated several times before it was finally settled at its present location in March 1996. It currently houses about 8,000 people, most of whom are ethnic Karenni.
