CALAIS, France - A makeshift migrant camp in Calais, France, is being destroyed by fire, but no injuries have been reported.

Authorities say migrants set fire to the camp, as they were forced to leave them.

A local official says that migrants "have a tradition" of burning their shelters before leaving.

Thousands of migrants who had been living in the camp have been relocated to reception centers around France.
