A number of residents were successfully rescued from a burning building in Dublin’s city centre in the early hours of this morning.

Three adults and five children were removed from the south inner city complex Thomas Court when emergency services arrived at the scene.

The Dublin Fire Brigade, assisted by An Garda Siochana, responded to a report of a domestic fire at approximately 3.30am this morning.  

Following the rescue operation, all of the people taken from Thomas Court were treated for smoke inhalation at St. James’s Hospital and Tallaght Hospital.

According to a garda spokesperson, none of those rescued is believed to be severely injured.

The fire was fully quenched by 5am this morning.
