The refugees, living in a slum near Kalindi Kunj Metro Station, shifted to a nearby ground. According to residents of the camp, the fire broke out around 3.10am when most residents of the camp were asleep and rushed out to the road outside the camp after being alerted about the blaze. The locals and the police helped the refugees with food and clothes after the incident.
