Firefighters battled a major blaze at a derelict house in south Dublin

Dublin Fire Brigade tackled a major fire at a house in Dublin yesterday afternoon.

Firefighters have been called to a house fire on the N11 Stillorgan Dual Carriageway in Foxrock.

A number of personnel and resources were dispatched to the scene, including the district officer, three pumps, a 100-foot turntable ladder and a water tank truck.

The alarm is understood to have been triggered before 12 noon on Thursday.

In a post on Twitter, the Dublin Fire Brigade said the fire was soon brought under control and there were no injuries. The house was uninhabited and derelict.

Images of the incident show large plumes of dark smoke billowing from the building as it was engulfed in flames.

Smoke also created dangerous driving conditions for motorists.

Two lanes and a cycle lane were closed to allow Dublin Fire Brigade to fight the fire and carry out their duties.

This comes just days after a popular pub in Carrick-On-Shannon was destroyed by a major fire in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Ging’s Bar in Cortober was packed with patrons on Saturday night but there was no one on the premises when the fire broke out around 6.30am.

The damage to the pub was described as serious and the premises could be out of use for some time.

Gardai and rescue workers rushed to the scene of the fire around 6:30 a.m. on Sunday.

The cause of the fire has not yet been determined as clean-up work is ongoing on the site. Firefighters battled a major blaze at a derelict house in south Dublin
