NINE NEIGHBOURS WERE forced to leave their homes after a fire broke out nearby at a derelict house in Dundalk.

The blaze began just after 7pm at Dulargy Avenue yesterday.

Eastern Regional Communications Centre said that four pumps had to attend the fire, and that nine people had to evacuate their homes.

This was due to smoke from the fire affecting the houses nearby.

The flames were brought under control within hours, with the fire brigade departing at about 12.30am.

An ambulance and gardaí attended the scene.

Gardaí are now investigating the cause of the blaze.
