Nicosia firefighters have a busy night

The Nicosia Fire Department was very busy last night. There were four separate large fires started deliberately which had to be put out by the firefighters.

The first fire was started at Dereboyu around 7pm. Shortly after, there was another fire opposite the Gelibolu Primary school. As both these fires were being brought under control, two more fires were started, the last near the Cyprus Turkish Airways building.

It appears that all these fires were started by unidentified residents who were burning the piles of accumulated rubbish left uncollected by striking council workers, in a desperate attempt to clear up.
