The fire services were informed about the fire at the Pavsilipon hotel at 3.14am and responded by fighting the blaze with eight fire trucks, six from fire stations in Limassol, Pelendri, Moniatis and Agros, one from the British bases and one belonging to the forestry department.

According to an announcement by the services, the immediate and coordinated action prevented the fire from spreading to nearby houses.
