Dublin Fire brigade was called into action this evening after a car went on fire in a garage forecourt.

The vehicle caught fire just after 5pm at the Texaco on Dublin street.

Two units from Balbriggan and Swords raced to the scene and the blaze was brought under control a short time later.

An eye-witness told Independent.ie: "The car just turned into a ball of flames at the Texaco there in Balbriggan.

"It is very lucky that the fire brigade arrived so quickly. otherwise it could have been a major disaster. They doused it in foam and it was brought under control."
