Gardai Investigate After A Number Of Cars Set Ablaze In Dublin


Gardaí are investigating after a number of vehicles were set on fire in south Dublin this morning.

Four cars were damaged in the space of an hour and a half in Ballinteer and Rathfarnham.

Firefighters and Gardaí got to the scene of the first fire at Marley Court at twenty past five this morning.

The Dublin Fire Brigade crew from Rathfarnham put out the blaze, but there was damage to a car.

Then at twenty to seven, they were called to another fire just ten minutes’ drive away at Ballinteer Drive — where two more cars were in flames.

Just five minutes after that, there was another report of a fire nearby at The Dale apartment complex off The Heights in Ballinteer.

Dublin Fire Brigade says there are no reports of any injuries following the incidents.

Gardaí say they’re investigating what caused the fires, and will carry out forensic examinations.
