A fire took place in the early hours of this morning which has resulted in 5,000 Dublin homes being left without electricity.

Emergency services became aware of the blaze at the ESB sub-station around 5.30am this morning, which initially left 20,000 homes in south Dublin without power, but 15,000 have since been reconnected.

Areas affected by the outage include Blackrock, Booterstown, Foxrock, Sandymount, Leopardstown, Mount Merrion and Stillorgan.

Caution is advised as many street lights have been knocked out by the power outage, and it may have affected some traffic lights as well.

Three units from the fire brigade took to the scene of the fire and it is now under control.

The ESB hope to have full power restored around 10am this morning.
