The Dublin Fire Brigade has released incredible images showing the moment a horsebox caught fire today.
The incident, which was attended by engines from both Finglas and Phibsborough stations, saw a vehicle carrying several horses become inflamed on the N2.
The horses were removed from the vehicle thanks to what the Fire Brigade describes as 'quick thinking from the driver.'
There were no injuries to either the animals or the driver.
