A raging fire in Paphos was quickly brought under control by fire services at lunchtime on Wednesday, according to a fire brigade spokesman.
The blaze started in an area between Akoursos and Peyia village, he said.
“The fire is now under control and it burnt around two acres of agricultural land.”
Seven fire engines rushed to the scene and included trucks from the forestry department and a couple of small village stations close by.
Fire fighters were also given air support by two fire prevention helicopters, he added.
