Part of the roof of a school in Dublin has collapsed after a fire ripped through the building this morning.

The blaze broke out at Scoil Chaitríona in Coolock just after 6am.

It also caused a number of windows to blow out.

An investigation has been launched into the cause of the fire.

The Education Minister has been to see the damage.

JoMinister e McHugh says officials from his department are working on alternatives for the 200 pupils affected:

"My message for the community is that we're going to do whatever it takes. We have a history of dealing with crises in the past 12 months, in terms of other schools, so we have a team in place to do this".
