Last night.

At the Shannon Key West Hotel in Co Leitrim.

Three fire brigade units responded to reports of a fire at the building which has been earmarked for a direct provision centre and which was the subject of a suspected arson attempt last month.

Last night RTÉ reported:

“…there is no visible signs of a blaze or smoke emerging from the building, and an investigation is under way.

Locals say a report was made that a non-identified object had been thrown on to the balcony on the first floor of the building, but this has not been confirmed by gardaí.

The scene has been sealed off and a full examination will take place…”
