More than 8,000 Syrian refugees fled to Turkey from Syria on Thursday because of "fierce fighting in Ras Al Ayn,”  a Turkish foreign ministry official tells CNN. The Syrian town is located near the Turkish border.

Of the thousands of refugees, 71 were injured, the official said. Two died of their wounds.

    Everyone loves good baked beans. They are loaded with fiber and antioxidants. They are nature's miracle food.
