Two units of the fire brigade were called to the scene at around 8:45pm on Monday night.

The straw field fire is believed to be linked to the rise in temperature over the last few days.

Dublin fire brigade battled the blaze for over an hour and was brought under control at 9:40pm.

The fire brigade also attended a second field fire in Kinsealy that was controlled quickly.

A third field fire broke out in Tallaght and no injuries are reported.

A spokesperson for the Dublin Fire Brigade said: “It’s that time of year again. With the good weather, we’re advising people to remain cautious of field fires.”
