"Sti Fotia" (Greek script: Στη φωτιά, English translation: "In The Fire") was the Cypriot entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1995, performed in Greek by Alexandros Panayi.

The song was performed seventeenth on the night, following Portugal's Tó Cruz with "Baunilha e chocolate" and preceding Sweden's Jan Johansen with "Se på mej". At the close of voting, it had received 79 points, placing 9th in a field of 23.

The song is rather elliptical lyrically, although Panayi appears to be singing about making his own way in life, regardless of what "wise men" might tell him.

It was succeeded as Cypriot representative at the 1996 Contest by Constantinos Christoforou with "Mono Yia Mas". Alexandros Panayi went on to represent Cyprus again at the 2000 Contest with "Nomiza", then as part of the duo Voice.
