Paphos fire under partial control

A fire that was raging out of control between the communities of Skoulli and Kato Akourdhalia within the Paphos district has now been brought under partial control.

According to Fire Services Spokesperson Andreas Kettis, the uneven terrain where the fire had been spreading had been making it difficult for firefighters. The fire was reported to the authorities on Sunday morning.

At around 3pm, the fire was brought under partial control
