One person was brought to hospital with minor injuries after emergency services battled a fire in Dublin city centre today.

Emergency services attended the scene on Capel Street on Dublin's northside after they received the call at 3.15pm today.

Dublin Fire Brigade had four engines and a turntable ladder at the premises, a popular Japanese noodle and sushi bar called 'Musashi'.

Dublin Fire Brigade confirmed to Independent.ie that one person received a minor injury to the ankle during evacuation and was brought to hospital. There were no other injuries.

Capel Street was closed and gardai diverted traffic from the scene, causing major disruptions and delays.

The street has since been reopened, gardai confirm.
