On the 13th of this month a fire broke out in the dining hall building at the Udhailiyah camp. What started out as a small fire in a chimney quickly grew into a roaring blaze that consumed the dining hall, snack bar, library, game rooms, bowling alley, recreational offices and more. The fire department came, and they were able to stop the flames from spreading beyond the dining hall complex building, but they could not prevent the damage that was done. The building was gutted and the walls collapsed. It may take two years or longer for the facility to be rebuilt, leaving a gaping hole in the life of the people living in the small remote camp. Our sympathies go out to everyone there.
