Refugees wait with their pets for assistance in ruins of their burnt home in the Um-Piam refugee camp after a fire engulfed big part of it near Mae Sot February 24, 2012. According to local officials, around 5,000 people lost their homes in Um-Piam, the second largest refugee camp along the Thai-Myanmar border which houses more than 17,600 refugees . The refugee camps along the Thai-Myanmar border house more than 140,000 people from Myanmar who fled the country due to economic hardship, abuses and discrimination, and fighting between the army and ethnic armed groups. Many have been living in the camps for decades. REUTERS/Damir Sagolj (THAILAND - Tags: DISASTER)
