A large fire developed at a restaurant in Malahide village this evening.

Nautilus Restaraunt, located behind Malahide Garda station on Main street, became engulfed in flames shortly before 8pm this evening.

Dublin Fire Brigade confirmed that five fire engines, a turntable ladder and two senior officers attended the scene to put out the blaze.

It is not yet clear what has caused the fire but the building was believed to have been unoccupied.

The flames were brought under control shortly after 11pm this evening.

Gardai had closed off Main street in the village while the incident was ongoing.

A source said that an extractor fan was to blame for the blaze that started in the kitchen and spread quickly before the restaraunt was evacuated.

There are no reported injuries.
