Firefighters responded to three wildfires between 1pm and 3pm on Friday, according to Fire Service spokesperson Andreas Kettis.

In a post published on Twitter, Kettis reassured that all three fires, which broke out in the Nicosia district, were successfully put out.

The first one burnt over three acres of dry land and some olive trees near the village of Ergates. Two fire trucks were dispatched to control it.

The second one, which needed the intervention of five fire trucks, broke out in the area of Ayios Ioannis Malountas, burning mostly dry grass and wild vegetation.

The final one, for which the deployment of four fire trucks and volunteer groups was necessary, broke out in a riverbed near the village of Meniko. It was eventually put out at 3pm.
