Heavy clouds of smoke covered the Aglandjia area in northeast Nicosia due to a fire in the north, the fire service said on Tuesday.

The smoke that is visible near Sopaz area in Aglandjia appears to be due to a fire that broke out in the occupied areas, fire service spokesman Andreas Kettis said in a tweet.

Meanwhile, Turkish Cypriot media said a fire broke out in a landfill in Koutsoventi area around 5.30pm.

There has been no report about a blaze in the government-controlled areas, Kettis confirmed.
