Alassa fire was arson: fire service

A fire near a Limassol district village on Sunday had been set deliberately, the fire service said.

The blaze, near Alassa, burned 80 hectares of wild vegetation and private pine forest before it was brought under control by fire fighters at 10.30pm, around six hours after it broke out.

“The fire is certainly intentional,” fire service spokeswoman Lisa Kemidji said, adding that the location where it started was difficult to access.

“One can only reach the particular point on foot,” Kemidji said.

Around 27 fire fighting vehicles from across Cyprus were used to put the blaze under control, aided by eight water-dropping aircraft.
