Dublin Fire Brigade says members of the public do not need to be concerned about a large fire near Dublin Airport.

The blaze at a vehicle recycling plant near St Margaret's has now been brought under control.

No firefighters or members of the public were injured.

Eight units were called in to deal with the blaze, while firefighters were given increased water supply assistance from Fingal County Council.

Photos from the scene showed a large plume of smoke, and an aerial drone was deployed to assist with the operation.

Dublin Airport management said the fire was not having an effect on flights.

Residents within two kilometres of the site should keep their windows closed as a precaution while the remainder of the smoke plume dissipates.

Dublin Fire Brigade's John Guilfoyle explained: "The structure inside is extensively damaged, and there has been structural collapse.

"There are quite a number of vehicles that have been involved in the fire, but I understand they're for scrap or decommission."
