Television footage showed firefighters attempting to douse a fierce blaze that gutted several vehicles.
Turkey has opened a centre in Gaziantep to receive international aid for Syrian refugees fleeing the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad. Turkey is struggling to cope with an influx of almost 70,000 Syrian refugees.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility but southeastern Turkey has seen frequent attacks by the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), designated a terrorist group by Turkey, the United States and European Union. The group launched a separatist insurgency in the region 28 years ago.
