Efforts to extinguish fire near Alassa

The fire service is trying to put out a blaze that broke out in the area next to Alassa village near the Kouris dam in Limassol on Saturday.

According to spokesman Andreas Kettis, the fire broke out shortly after 14.00.

Fire engines from Limassol, Nicosia and Paphos, search and rescue team Emak and the Forestry Department are all trying to extinguish it.

In addition, an earth mover and a water tanker from the local administration are also aiding the efforts.

From the air, three aircraft and two leased helicopters have been mobilised.

The fire is burning dry grass and wild vegetation, while strong winds are making the firefighting work a difficult task.
