Almost 400 homes in Dublin are without power due to a fire at an ESB box.

Some 382 homes in the Ballyfermot area have no electricity due to an ongoing fire at an ESB box on the Blackditch Road.

Dublin Fire Brigade is on the scene and two pumps are in attendance at the fire.

The ESB has said it hopes to have power restored by 22.15 tonight.

The power cut out at 18.35 on Wednesday evening.
