Five DFB units attended the scene, including a turntable ladder and water tanker, shortly after 8pm beside the Swiss Cottage on the Swords Road.

“The fire is under control and firefighters remain on scene damping down. The Swords road was closed inbound to facilitate firefighting operations,” a spokesperson for Dublin Fire Brigade said in a statement.
