The fire broke out at a solicitor's office on Lower Camden Street on the top floor of a three-storey building shortly before 11am.

The road was closed at 11.05 forcing motorists to avoid the area, and caused major traffic disruption with the street not reopening until 3.30pm.

Destroyed

Dublin Fire Brigade said nobody was injured in the fire.

The front roof of the building was destroyed and the top floor was badly damaged.

Dublin Bus services going into the city were diverted via Hatch Street, Earlsfort Terrace, St Stephen's Green, Dawson Street and back on to normal routing.

It is not known how the blaze broke out.
