Two young children and woman were hospitalised after being rescued from a fire.

The blaze broke out in an apartment in The Bridge complex in Shankill, Co Dublin, at 7.20am.

Dublin Fire Brigade said a woman and two children, believed to be around two and three-years-old, were rescued from the property by fire fighters.

They were taken to Tallaght Hospital suffering from smoke inhalation.

Five crews, three from Dun Laoghaire and two from Donnybrook and a senior officer, attended the blaze, which is not believed to have spread to other apartments.
