According to the Cyprus Mail, the fires are now pretty much under control, or part extinguished. 10 fire-fighting aircraft have been in use, including British Army helo fitted with water bucket.
Fires mostly in Limassol area, but had also spread towards Larnaca (approx 60km) . Police have a 62 year old man in custody suspected of arson.
4 fatalities and several properties either destroyed or severely damaged.
Cyprus fire update ......... as of this morning here on the island, nothing much in the way of further announcements, so I imagine the fires are all now either extinguished, or under control.
One "cuddly" bit of news is that the Cypriot Veterinarians have announced free care for any animals affected by the fires, regardless of the severity of their injuries.
