Firefighters in Limassol scrambled on Monday to tackle two fires that broke out almost at the same time in the middle of the day.
One of the fires was at a fabric warehouse at the Linopetra industrial estate while the other one broke out at the Ayios Sylas industrial estate, the fire service said.
The warehouse blaze spread to the outside of the warehouse, threatening gas cylinders, the service said. Eight engines were dispatched to the area, putting the fire under control and protecting adjacent premises.
The second fire destroyed two hectares of dry grass and wild vegetation before it was brought under control. Four engines and four aircraft were used.
