Firefighters spent 16 hours battling a large blaze on a derelict site on Dublin's northside.

Crews worked through the night after the fire broke out at approximately 2pm yesterday on Richmond Road in Drumcondra.

Five pumps, two aerial units and a foam and a command unit attended the scene.

The road was partly closed as emergency services battled the huge fire at the derelict warehouse.

Residents were warned yesterday to close their windows as a precaution as the smoke spread quickly across the north side.

The fire was brought under control shortly before 6am this morning.
