EMERGENCY SERVICES IN Kildare fought a blaze at a disused factory in Naas for over five hours last night before it was brought under control and extinguished.

Fire brigades from Naas, Newbridge and Maynooth were deployed to the scene on the N7 at about 8.30pm after an alarm was raised at the vacant Cemex Concrete Pipes factory.

Plumes of thick, black smoke hampered driving conditions for the evening near the well-known Perpetual Motion sculpture on the national road.

Gardaí told TheJournal.ie this morning that investigations continue but no known cause has been determined.

The Senior Assistant Chief Fire Officer from the Newbridge unit confirmed that nobody was injured in the fire. The last firefighters left the site at 1.45 this morning after the blaze was extinguished.
