ARCHIVE: Air Corps tackle blazing gorse fire

While conducting Firefighting Readiness Training this week the Air Corps encountered a fire developing in the Ballinascorney area in Dublin.

Although engaged on a training exercise, the crew decided to drop water on the gorse fire in a bid to bring the blaze under control.

The Defence Forces and Dept of Defence will continue to liaise closely with the lead agency, the Dept of Housing, Planning and Local Government, as well as various state bodies including the Fire Service, during this period of hot weather.
