Emergency services attended the scene of a car fire, not far from Liffey Valley Shopping Centre after the alarm was raised, circa 8.15pm.  

Dublin Fire Brigade and gardaí attended the scene, but the car was already engulfed in flames by the time they arrived.

After the fire was extinguished, emergency service members discovered the body of a male in the car.
