Fire fighters were called after a car involved in a three car crash in west Dublin burst into flames.

Three units from Dublin Fire Brigade - as well as a DFB ambulance - attended the scene in Clondalkin yesterday morning.

The incident occurred close to the Nangor Road shortly after 11am. 

In a separate incident, emergency services were called after three cars were involved in a road collision in Lucan.

Two appliances and an ambulance from the DFB attended the scene at St Lomans Road shortly after 9am.

There were no serious injuries reported as a result of either incident.

However, a DFB spokesperson warned motorists to take extra care on wet roads.

Met Eireann have forecast heavy showery rain countrywide this afternoon.
