A fire between Ypsonas and Kolossi near a residential area west of Limassol burned down four hectares of wild vegetation and trees on Saturday.

The fire erupted just after 3pm and was put out some two hours later.

One fire engine from the British bases joined three trucks of the fire service, while two helicopters and one aircraft by the forestry department were also assisting in the efforts.

Fire service spokesman Andreas Kettis said firemen had focused on preventing the flames from spreading to nearby homes.

Police are investigating the cause of fire.
