Firefighters battle blaze in field off the N7

Fire fighters battled a vegetation fire in a field off the N7 earlier this evening.

The blaze was located beside the Belgard Road, a short distance from Newlands Cross Flyover.

Smoke billowed in the direction of nearby houses.

Dublin Fire Brigade warned of the fire risks around vegetation and added: “Hay and straw dry out very quickly in the sunshine.”
