The fire service on Friday had to evacuate a three-storey apartment building in Limassol after a fire broke out in one of the flats.

No serious injuries were reported although two people with breathing problems were hospitalized as a precaution.

The fire broke out about 15 minutes before eight in a flat on the second floor of the building on General Makriyiannis Street.

Three engines arrived on the scene and firefighters along with police officers helped people evacuate their flats.

The flames were put out around 30 minutes later but extensive damage was caused to the apartment. Two other flats were affected by the smoke.

The cause of the fire was under investigation.
