As Loizos Loizou, a Forestry Department official said, “the fire is moving east; we have enough forces on the site,” noting, however, that the strong winds and the difficult terrain are making the whole operation difficult.

So far the fire, he said, has partially affected the eucalyptus forest but no houses are in danger.
