Busy Halloween for the Fire Servcices

DUBLIN FIRE BRIGADE has dealt with well over a hundred call outs today as units across the city contend with a large number of blazes as a result of Halloween.

On what is always one of the busiest days of the year for the force, fire officers have been dealing with bonfires, domestic fires as well as other Halloween-related incidents.

Between 9am and 5pm today, DFB responded to 59 fire calls. Since then, there have been numerous reported incidents, including bonfires, fire from fireworks, car fires, pallets on fire as well as domestic fires and others.

Units from North Strand Station were called out earlier this evening to a large fire at a bonfire complex.
