A fire that broke out in the area of Marathounda in Paphos on Sunday was almost under control at midday, the fire service said.
So far the fire gas burned around two hectares of wild vegetation.

The fire service has been working since 9.30am to bring the fire under control using two helicopters, five fire engines from Paphos and Stroumbi as well as a fire truck from the game fund.

The work is being hampered by the rough terrain but a perimeter has been established to stop the spread of the flames, the fire service said.
