Fire fighters are battling a blaze in south Dublin this afternoon.

The fire broke out in a disused building close to an apartment block.

Four Dublin Fire Brigade appliances were on site to fight the blaze.

Neither residents nor the building were ever under threat from the flames, a source said.

All firefighters have now left the scene and the fire was extinguished before 4.30pm.

Local Fine Gael Councillor, Neale Richmond, has said that the fire raises serious questions of safety at empty building sites in the County.

"Three units from Dublin Fire Brigade battled a fire at Carrickmines Green for a number of hours on Sunday afternoon.

"The fire started in an underground car park of a building site at the development and thankfully it was put out with nobody hurt.

"The fire raises questions about what sort of conditions unused buildings or sites are being left in and I will be calling on the Council's Building Controls section to investigate the matter fully."
