A fire is in progress between the villages of Akoursos – Pegeia District of Paphos. According to the representative of the Fire Service Andreas Ketti, the fire broke out in an inaccessible area. Firefighting forces from the Ministry of Defense and the Forest Department are responding. Aerial means were also activated, said Mr. Kettis. The fire is under the operational responsibility of the Forest Department.

In statements to politis.com.cy, the Director of the Forest Department, Charalambos Alexandrou, stated that the situation is extremely difficult due to the fact that the fire is directed both to the right and left of the ravine and that is why the evacuation of the village of Akoursos was requested. The situation, as he told us, is aggravated by the strong winds that blow in the area.
