Column of black smoke visible from Nicosia

21 December 2015

Billowing black clouds of smoke rose from an industrial estate in the North Nicosia suburb of Haspolat today.

Fire blazed from a huge pile of waste material, the bulk of which was made up of old tyres. A column of black smoke was visible from the capital.

The intense heat caused an explosion which set fire to an electricity pole nearby, prompting Kib-Tek to cut power to the local area.

Fireman fought the blaze and the police will now try to determine the cause of the fire.
