The administrator of Ashti Internally Displaced Persons Camp in Arbat sub-district, Bekhshan Tawfiq, said that the incident was caused by a short circuit.
"The flames caught a few tents, and a young girl died. An investigation will be initiated," she said.
The camp houses 1850 families, mainly from Saladin, Mosul, Sinjar, and Diyala. Three hundred thirty families have returned to their hometowns over the past year, according to official data.
