Authorities on the island of Lesbos called for the immediate evacuation Tuesday of thousands of refugees to the Greek mainland after a fire gutted a detention camp following protests. But European Union officials appeared cool to the idea.
More than 4,000 people were housed at the camp in Moria on Lesbos where the fire broke out late Monday, destroying or damaging tents and trailers. No injuries were reported at the camp, about 8 kilometers (5 miles) north of the island's main town.
Nine migrants were arrested on public disturbance charges after the chaotic scenes.
