A fire raging near the rubbish dump of the village of Trimiklini in Limassol was brought under control by Limassol fire-fighters early on Tuesday afternoon, the Forestry Department said.

Around 35 men from the forestry department, the fire service and game service, 11 fire engines and a private excavator as well as a plane were used to contain and eventually extinguish the fire.

The blaze, which started at around 1pm, momentarily looked like it could threaten the residential area, burned wild shrubs and rubbish.

A fire service spokesman said the blaze was located on the side of a hill and was being fanned by strong winds.
