Howth Gorse Fire Caused By Dry Weather
Dublin Fire Brigade is tending to a major gorse fire in Howth.
4 units are tending to the blaze that broke in the early hours of this morning.
They're warning on social media that more fires of this type can be expected with the current dry weather.
3 pumps and a water tanker are currently at #Howth fighting the gorse fires. Take care out in the countryside this weekend. It’s VERY dry!— Dublin Fire Brigade (@DubFireBrigade) June 9, 2018
BBQ in designated areas, take care disposing of cigarettes.
