A MASSIVE FIRE has been brought under control at Dublin’s old motor tax office, but there are reports that squatters may have been in the derelict building.

The fire broke out earlier this morning at River House on Chancery Street in the Smithfield area.

It was brought under control by six Dublin Fire Brigade engines, a turntable ladder, the Incident Command Unit, an emergency tender and three senior fire officers.

While the fire is now out, the building is smokelogged and fire fighters are searching the building as there are reports that squatters had been living in the offices, which have been empty for the past three years.
