Fireworks and the remains of a barbecue were discovered at the scene of a fire earlier this week
Dublin Fire Brigade is urging people to be careful following a pair of gorse fires in Howth this week.
Crews put out a fire in the north Dublin village on Thursday, which they say was likely caused by a firework.
This time last night we were responding to gorse fire on Howth. 3 pumps for almost 4 hours. It was likely caused by fireworks found at scene pic.twitter.com/RMlhpNufC4— Dublin Fire Brigade (@DubFireBrigade) October 28, 2016
Remains of a barbecue were also discovered.
They responded to a second blaze earlier today.
Dublin Fire Brigade has now taken to social media to urge people to be careful in the countryside, amid a continued spell of dry weather.
They are also reminding the public that lighting an illegal firework in any place could carry a jail term, or fines up to €10,000.
The warning comes as fire crews prepare for a particularly busy night on Halloween. Dublin Fire Brigade will be live-tweeting events over the course of Monday night.
