Updated: Fire at Strovolos factory contained (photos)

Fire services have managed to contain a fire which broke out at a Strovolos factory not far from the Nicosia-Limassol highway on Thursday morning.

A huge cloud of black smoke was visible from many parts of Nicosia as fire fighters did battle with the blaze at the factory JK Switchboards which makes generators.

They were able to prevent the fire from spreading to other buildings.

Reports said there were some minor injuries from smoke inhalation.

Because of the fire, police temporarily closed Spryos Kyprianou road towards the Kalamon roundabout in both directions.

 

The road has since reopened.
