Dublin Fire Brigade were called to a massive fire at the Verdemont Apartment of the Snugborough Road in Blanchardstown just after 5 o'clock yesterday evening.
According to Independent.ie, the blaze was caused by a barbeque that fell over.
One resident claims the fire started when the flames of another person's barbeque fell into his home on the fourth floor.

They have been given somewhere to stay by Fingal County Council and Dublin Civil Defence's Cabra unit.
