– Home Office spokesman
A fire at Campsfield immigration removal centre has led to more than half of the detainees being relocated to other removal centres around the UK.
All the detainees have been accounted for and two male detainees are now in hospital. The cause of the fire is being investigated by police and the fire service.
The UK Border Agency website says the centre - privately run by MITIE - has space for 216 beds.
It describes Campsfield House as a long-term centre for men, who are detained pending the outcome of their immigration case and possible removal.
One person is in hospital following a fire at an immigration detention centre, the Home Office has said.

Prime Minister David Cameron agrees with the principle of the Home Office text messages urging people to contact them about their immigration status.
A Downing Street spokesman said: "The point of the texting, which the Prime Minister does agree with, is to get in touch with people who may be here illegally and to say to them ... that they need to be considering going home voluntarily or being removed.
"The principle of the text message is correct. This is one of various means the Home Office uses to get in touch with people who are here illegally to bring about their removal from the UK.
"It's a tiny proportion of texts that may have gone to erroneous people and the wording of the text just says 'you may be here illegally'."
Private contractor Capita said it has no record of sending an anti-racism campaigner a text urging him to contact them about his immigration status.
Suresh Grover, founder of The Monitoring Group, told The Independent he was "absolutely shocked and quite horrified" to receive the text message warning him he "may not have leave to remain in the UK."
A spokesperson for Capita, who sent the messages at the request of the Home Office, said of the 58,800 people they contacted by text or email between December 2012 and June 2013, just 14 complaints were received claiming they had been sent in error.
"Most complaints occurred in the earlier part of this period where Capita was, as part of the contract, updating sometimes out-of-date Home Office records," the spokesperson added.
