The fire services and UNFICYP vehicles, four fire trucks were on hand to stop the fire from spreading to Kato Dherynia and occupied Famagusta. And Turkish occupied forces were on standby  just in case it spread.

Fire service spokesman Andeas Kettis said earlier that two fire trucks were standing by at the hospital and had fought back the fire earlier on Monday when it approached the hospital.

But the main front of the fire was in the occupied areas, towards the sea, he said.
