As High As The Surrounding Buildings – Here's Another Huge Inferno In Dublin City Centre
We were on the ground in Dublin 8 to see one of the city's biggest bonfires
We reported earlier on a bonfire raging up in Theresa Gardens in Dublin 8 – and now we've caught sight of another one a few minutes away in Kevin Street.
Equally furious, this one burned at well over 50 feet high at its peak – reaching even the heights of the apartment blocks surrounding the park.
Children as young as three were seen close to the fire, in some instances letting off illegal fireworks, while the party kicked into full swing around the inferno.
The fire threatened tress
100s watched on
Meanwhile, fire units across the city have been targeted by rocks, missiles and other forms of antisocial behaviour – making their impossibly difficult night even worse.
Stay safe out there, folks.
Crews have had experienced anti-social behaviour in Clonsilla for the second time tonight. No F/Fs injured. Withdrawn from scene #dfblive— Dublin Fire Brigade (@DubFireBrigade) October 31, 2015
