Fire closes Limassol-Paphos highway

The Limassol-Paphos highway was closed to traffic on Wednesday evening due to a fire near Sotira village in the Limassol district, according to police.

Drivers are requested to travel to Papos using the old road connecting the two cities.

Due to thick smoke, police also request drivers to keep their distance, and keep their hazard light on at all times when passing through the area.

The fire broke out at around 3pm and has burned 20 hectares so far. A fire department spokesperson said that putting out the blaze was extremely difficult due to strong winds.
