Two mobile homes burst into flames at a popular Dublin caravan park overnight, firefighters have confirmed.

It was just one of a number of incidents dealt with by Dublin Fire Brgade during a busy Friday night.

A spokesman explained that three units from Swords, Kilbarrack and the North Strand were called to the caravan park in Donabate, North Dublin shortly after 1.30am.

Officers believe that one mobile home went up in flames and a short time later a second caravan, adjacent to the first one, caught fire.

Three fire units were required as the water supply was some distance away from the fires.

The fires were brought under control at 2.30am and nobody was hurt in the blaze. No rescues were required.

Meanwhile units in south Dublin were called to deal with a case of hypothermia at a home in Drimnagh.

An elderly female occupant was discovered in the home and treated for the cold.

A spokesperson tweeted: "Bitterly cold overnight. We dealt with one hypothermia case in Drimnagh. Please check in on vulnerable neighbours or family members today."
