Firefighters tackle blaze at recycling plant

It took Dublin Fire Brigade around three hours to put out the fire.

DUBLIN FIREFIGHTERS LAST night battled for more than two hours to bring a blaze at a recycling plant under control.

This happened at the Panda Waste Recycling facility on the Cappagh Road in Finglas.

Dublin Fire Brigade arrived on the scene at around 8.20pm with four fire engines and officers from its Environmental Unit.

A unit of the fire brigade with a turntable ladder was also in attendance.

A spokesperson from Dublin Fire Brigade said that the fire was tricky to put out as recycling material had caught fire, meaning firefighters had to pull sections of the fire away from the main recycling materials before extinguishing them.

The fire was brought under control shortly after 11pm.

This was the second major incident on a busy night for Dublin Fire Brigade, after units also had to tackle a gorse blaze in the south of the city.
