Firefighters were called to control a second fire in two days at the historic Belcamp College in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Dublin Fire Brigade (DFB) teams from Finglas, North Strand, and Kilbarrack were all called to battle the fire that broke out at around 4am on Saturday.

A turntable ladder, foam tender and environmental unit attended the scene.

The cause of the fire is unknown but is likely to be linked to a fire that broke out at the college on Friday at 5.30am.

Belcamp College, located on the Malahide Road, has been subject to a number of arson attacks in the past.

Both fires are being investigated by the Gardai.
