A spokesperson for Cork City Fire Brigade told TheJournal.ie that the building is believed to be empty.

We don’t believe that anyone is in the building because we believe it to be derelict but we are still investigating the fire at the moment.

The spokesperson added that the fire is quite large but at the moment they don’t believe there is a possibility of it spreading further.
