PART OF A Dublin street was closed off this afternoon after windows began cracking in an office building.

A window cracked in the One Clarendon Row/King Street South building cracked this afternoon, leading to Dublin Fire Brigade being called out to make the window safe.

A DFB fire fighter cut the window away to stop further debris from falling on to the busy street, which is home to the Gaiety Theatre and Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre.

Reports on the scene that the window cracked and “exploded out” before the Fire Brigade was called and that this was the second such incident in the building in a week.

Garda sources say that nothing was thrown from street level and the street has now reopened.
