A second fire has broken out in the Diorios-Kapouti area in the Turkish-occupied north, a week after a massive blaze caused major destruction in the forested region.
According to Turkish-Cypriot media, the latest fire is also in a forested area, very near where the first one broke out last week.
Strong winds are blowing and as reported, a major fire fighting force and people in the area are trying to contain it.
It is the sixth fire front in the Turkish-occupied areas today.
The other five are under control.
