Dublin Fire Brigade dealt with hundreds of calls on Halloween night

Dublin Fire Brigade hailed the night as a success as there were no Halloween-related injuries.

DUBLIN FIRE BRIGADE dealt with 872 calls on what has been described as a “full-on” Halloween night.

The majority of calls last night were about bonfires, though there were a small number of domestic fire crews attended.

Donal Petherbridge, mobilisation officer with the fire brigade, told RTÉ’s Morning Ireland that it was “a busy night, as expected, we were full-on all night long”.

In one incident in Quarryvale, a car was driven into a bonfire and in Clondalkin a crew dealt with a fire that started under power pylons.

Petherbridge hailed the night as a success, as he said there were “no injuries associated with Halloween”.

It is understood a crew from Dolphin’s Barn was attacked by a group of youths at the flats in Basin Street, but no one was injured.
