Three units of the fire brigade rushed to the scene near the junction with South Circular Road.

Dublin Fire Brigade said Leonard’s Corner was blocked as it dealt with the fire, which was brought under control just after 5pm.

An ambulance crew from Donnybrook Station also evacuated nearby offices before the arrival of firefighters.

The road remains closed between the Kevin Street junction and the canal, with outbound delays on approach from Christchurch. It’s also slow approaching Harold’s Cross Bridge along the Grand Canal as well as Harold’s Cross Road.

Dublin Bus, meanwhile, told commuters to expect heavy delays in the area.

Smoke affected visibility in the area and motorists were being urged to drive with care.
