A fire in the basement of a Larnaca apartment block on Wednesday night led the fire brigade to evacuate the building as a precaution, the Cyprus News Agency said.
It said that a fire had broken out at a car parked in the basement of a four-storey building in Larnaca. Because of the smoke, police and the fire brigade evacuated the building until the fire was extinguished.
Moreover, overnight the fire service answered four calls for help to free people trapped in their cars because of heavy rain in the Choirokitia, Zygi and Tochni area. It also pumped out water from three flooded buildings in Ayios Theodoros, Zygi and Kalavasos.
