Emergency services (second picture) at the scene of a fire which broke out on Bray Head this morning (top) which has caused damage to railway infrastructure – forcing the line between Bray and Greystones to be closed for the rest of the day.

Last night/this morning.

The Metro Hotel and apartment complex, Ballymun,  Dublin 11.

Two fire engines remain at the scene of the blaze which broke out at about 8pm last night, in a private residence above the Metro Hotel.

…The fire started on the building’s 13th floor before spreading to surrounding floors.

It is understood members of Dublin Fire Brigade went through the building, floor by floor to ensure it was fully evacuated.

The brigade’s Chief Fire Officer said that the fire has been extinguished and investigations will begin once the building has been made safe.

Dublin Fire Brigade tweetz:

The fire in St Margarets is now under control. Some units will be released from the scene shortly, however some will remain to dampen down any hot spots. We would still advise any residents in the surrounding area to keep their windows closed.
