Another two cars on an adjacent plot belonging to the forestry department were also engulfed int he flames. The vehicles are valued at €3,000 and €10,000.

An hour later Kofinou police were notified of a fire on a plot of land on the Anglisides to Alethriko road.

The fire services managed to extinguish the blaze but an abandoned house on the plot could not be saved.

The two scenes were cordoned off and put under police guard while the fire and electromechanical services conduct an investigation.
