A large-scale fire broke out on the Miral facility in Velika Kladusa, a city located some 365 kilometers northwest of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s (BiH’s) capital Sarajevo.
The facility is usually used as a temporary reception center for several hundred migrants.
The first information says 29 persons are injured, and were transferred to Health Center Velika Kladusa.
Most of the injuries were caused by smoke poisoning, as well as fractures while migrants were trying to escape through windows.
There are still no official causes of the fire and more information is expected during the day.
