http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-36583544 In Sunday, possibly an act of inconsideration (and stupidity) by a 12 year-old kid playing with a lighter, a forest fire started in the mountain area of Troodos, Cyprus. Because of a very high peak in temperature (40 degrees Celsius the highest recorded thus far), the fire has spread rapidly and uncontrollably destroying around 10-15 thousand square kilometers of pine forest, while inhabitants from nearby villages evacuated due to the smoke. The article is about the second recorded death of a firefighter in action, while water aircraft from Greece, Israel and the UK have come to assist. France, Italy and Turkey are expected to provide some as well. This is yet another example of a really dumb kid lacking any real supervision and allowed to cause huge damage. Cyprus is generally lacking in green and forests and this kind of damage is truly staggering.
