A fire which broke out around 1pm in Protaras has been put under control.
The fire in Laxia area of Paralimni was particularly dangerous because it was close to residences.
It burned down greenhouses and dry shrubs.
To tackle the fire, five fire trucks were used. Due to the difficulty of the terrain, a Forest Department plane was called to help.
In the attempts to quench the flames, two firemen faced danger. The worst was averted by the intervention of the other fire fighting forces.
