Three Dublin Fire Brigade units called to Vicar Street blaze

Words: Emily Mullen

The fire was said to be on the roof of the music venue

Three units of Dublin Fire Brigade were called to a blaze in Vicar Street music venue, on June 28th.

Reports of the blaze were issued at 12:04pm, that Thomas Street was blocked as units from HQ, Dolphins Barn and Donnybrook were called to “deal with a fire on the roof of a building”.

Videos posted on social media show a large plume of smoke coming from the roof of the building.

Just 50 minutes later at 12:54pm, Dublin Fire Brigade announced that the fire was under control.

“The fire on Thomas Street is under control and crews are turning-over and damping down any hotspots,” Dublin Fire Brigade tweeted, “Firefighters prevented any significant spread of the fire.”

Thomas Street has since reopened, firefighters have left the scene and the “building has been handed back to its operators”.

A garda spokesperson said, “There have been no reports of any injuries at this time.”

There has as yet been no comment from Vicar Street representatives on the extent of the damage to the venue.
