A video has been viewed thousands of times in multiple Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube posts that claim it shows a massive fire in a village in central Myanmar. The posts surfaced online after reports circulated that the village was burned down by the Myanmar military on June 15, 2021. The claim is false: this video in fact shows the blaze that destroyed a refugee camp in Thailand in 2013.
