Two persons who sustained severe burns died from their wounds.
Chairperson of the Borno State Emergency Management Agency, Yabawa Kolo said the incidence happened on the eve of the Eid-El-Fitr.
Governor Babagana Zulum has visited the camp to ascertain the level of destruction caused by the fire.
Zulum said the incessant fire incidences in makeshift camps further underscores why camps should be completely closed down in the state.
The governor revealed that the federal government has approved the construction of ten thousand housing units across the state, withnthe affected population in mind.
He said the construction will commence immediately funds are released to bring an end to the idea of living in temporary shelters.
In the first quarter of this year alone, several IDP camps in Nganzai, Ngala, Mafa and Monguno local governments were gutted by fire as a result of the cluster settlement of the people.
