Paphos pub arson

Police suspect a fire, which broke out early Thursday in a Paphos pub and was put out by neighbours was the result of financial differences.

The fire at the pub, which is situated in Agapinoros street and is owned by two men aged 34 and 36, damaged a pergola before being put under control.

The fire broke out at about 5.20am causing upheaval in the neighbourhood.

The perpetrators however, were not identified by neighbours and managed to escape from the rear of the building.

Paphos CID and fire service officers carrying out investigations at the scene determined the fire was set deliberately.  The perpetrators had doused the pergola in flammable liquid before setting it alight.

The damage was estimated to be about €300.

Police sources said they believed the fire had to do with financial differences the owners of the place have with a local man aged 55.
