Dublin Fire Brigade evacuated residents from an apartment complex in south Dublin following a domestic fire this evening.

Three pumps attended the scene after a fire broke out in one of the apartments in a complex at Beacon South Quarter in Sandyford, south Dublin.

The alarm was raised shortly before 8pm.

A spokesperson for Dublin Fire Brigade confirmed that residents were evacuated.

Units from Dun Laoghaire and Donnybrook attended the scene.

Previously owners of apartments in the complex learned that they will have to foot a €10m bill for remedial works relating to fire safety defects discovered by the chief fire safety officer in Dublin Fire Brigade.

It is understood that tonight's incident was minor and the evacuation of residents went smoothly according to a source.

Separately residents were also evacuated from apartments in Stepaside following a fire.
