Hundreds of customers evacuated in IKEA Dublin after false alarm

Customers were told to leave the building, but were able to return shortly afterwards

Hundreds of customers in IKEA Dublin were evacuated from the premises on Sunday amid reports of a technical problem with the building.

A number of customers took to social media to report that the building was being evacuated, with some stating that there was a smell of burning or smoke in the air. 

Shoppers were allowed back into the building shortly afterwards, after an announcement stated that they would be re-opening the doors, in what appeared to be a false alarm.
