Police said on Sunday a 32-year-old man has been remanded in custody for five days in connection with the fire which broke out in Limassol district’s Prastio and Avdimou area, a week ago.
The fierce fire, believed to have been an act of arson, burnt around 10 square kilometres of trees and wild vegetation.
A number of premises were also destroyed and three homes at Prastio had to be evacuated as a precautionary measure.
The suspect denies any involvement in the starting of the fires.
A day earlier a large fire broke out in the areas of Kouklia, Archimandrita, Orites, Mousers, and Dora destroying five square kilometers of land, three of which were national forest.
