Fire-fighting crews and helicopters are trying to put out a fire that broke out at around 3pm on Sunday in Kyvides, in Limassol.

The task of the firemen is difficult, due to strong winds in the area, they said.

Earlier in the day, firemen and volunteers managed to put out the blaze that erupted in Sina Oros in the Nicosia mountainous area in the afternoon, before spreading close to nearby houses.

The fire, according to the forestry department broke out at around 1.45pm in the Astromeritis to Troodos road, in the community of Sina Oros.

It took seven engines, a 30-men crew, a fire-fighting aircraft and the assistance of residents to put out the blaze within 20 minutes, to prevent it from spreading to houses.
