A Smyths toy store was evacuated after a fire broke out this afternoon.

The fire at Smyths in Naas’s Globe Retail Park, close to the N7, was reported shortly after 3pm this afternoon.

A spokesman from An Garda Síochána told Independent.ie the store was evacuated after the blaze broke out and that there were no injuries reported at the scene.

Gardaí also warned motorists travelling along the adjacent M7 motorway to be cautious due to smoke from the fire blowing across the road.

AA Roadwatch earlier warned motorists to “take extra care driving in the area as visibility may be affected”.

The cause of the blaze is yet to be confirmed.
