One of the city’s most well known and well regarded venues, Vicar Street has sustained significant smoke and water damage following a fire on the roof of the building earlier today.
The fire service started receiving calls just before 12pm today, and Thomas Street in the city centre was closed for some time during the operation.
Dublin Fire Brigade says there was a fire on the roof terrace area, which was contained to that area but the whole building was filled with smoke and will suffer water damage.
Nobody was injured during the incident.
