Baku-APA. Four Syrian refugees, including three children, were killed in the Turkish border town of Ceylanpınar after a fire broke out in their tent on Tuesday evening, APA reports quoting Todays Zaman.

The fire broke out when the electric heater fell over.

A pregnant woman (26) and three children died at the scene of the incident despite the efforts of other Syrians to extinguish the fire in the tent. The injured were taken to hospital.

This is the second fire in the town to claim the lives of refugees. A 2-year-old Syrian boy was killed in that fire, which broke out in Ceylanpınar, a town in the southeastern province of Şanlıurfa. Four of his siblings were injured.

In another deadly fire, five Syrian children, aged between 1 and 6, died at a hospital in Hatay province, in southern Turkey, where they had been taken for treatment after a fire broke out in their tent near the Turkish border.
