DUBLIN FIRE BRIGADE are still attending the scene of a fire at a derelict building adjacent to a platform in Connolly Station.
Commuters were earlier warned to expect a significant delay because of the fire on Preston Street but normal services have now resumed through platforms 6 and 7.
The alarm was raised about the fire just after 5pm today and a spokesperson for the Dublin Fire Brigade told TheJournal.ie that there was “a big problem with water” due to the nightly restrictions on the supply across Dublin.
The problems were with water pressure as the firefighters tried to dampen down the blaze and the fire service’s 17,000 litre water tanker was deployed to the scene.
There have been no reports of injuries in the fire.
