DUBLIN FIRE BRIGADE responded to a fire at a derelict building next to Oliver St. John Gogarty’s pub in Dublin’s Temple Bar last night.

The fire was at an disused telephone exchange building next to the busy night-spot, according to the fire service. It was initially reported by some outlets that the fire was at the pub itself.

The fire has now been extinguished.

There are no reports of any injuries, a garda spokesperson said.

It’s believed the fire was caused by an electrical fault.
