Two people have been hospitalized after a fire broke out at Ireland’s tallest building

Two people have been taken to hospital after a fire broke out in a residential building in Belfast city centre.

The Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service said it was called to reports of a fire at the Obel Tower building on Friday morning.

Towering 85 meters above the city, the Obel is famous as Ireland’s tallest building.

A spokesman for NIFRS said six firefighting units, one air unit and one commando support unit, 42 firefighters and five officers were present at the blaze, which took place around 6:20 a.m.

The fire brigade brought two injured people to safety. They were taken to the hospital with smoke inhalation.

In September, the Supreme Court heard how the building was “endangered by alleged fire safety deficiencies.”

The management company’s solicitor and the original developers of Obel Tower in Belfast claimed safety issues surrounding the cladding had not been denied.

In January 2015, some residents on the upper floors were ordered to leave their homes after a fire broke out on the roof. It was later classified as random.

The construction of the 27-storey building, which houses over 200 luxurious high-end apartments, started in 2005 and was completed in 2011. Two people have been hospitalized after a fire broke out at Ireland’s tallest building
