Pictured: Blankets used for migrants to escape the barbed wire at Moria camp on Lesbos island.<br />
Re: Up to 4,000 migrants were evacuated from the Moria camp on the Greek island of Lesbos after a large fire destroyed tents and prefabricated homes.<br />
No injuries have been reported, and some migrants have now been allowed to return to the camp.<br />
Police are investigating whether the fire was deliberate, but an aid worker said it started after a food dispute.<br />
There are some 5,600 refugees currently in Lesbos, according to the UN, but the island only has capacity for 3,600.<br />
The fire destroyed 30% of the camp, according to Aris Vlashopoulos, an aid worker with the Swiss charity SAO.<br />
"People are returning to the camp now as I can see. But the biggest number of the refugees are already on the streets, sleeping outside," he added.
