Gardaí were also in attendance but said that no further information was available at this time.

The Swords Road inbound was blocked at Santry Ave as emergency services dealt with the nearby fire but has since been cleared, according to AA Roadwatch. 

Dublin Fire Brigade had advised people living in the local area to close windows as smoke was drifting.
