Dublin Fire Brigade has issued a warning about the dangers of fires starting near or inside tents.

The warning comes as the heatwave continues across Ireland.

On Twitter, the lads at Dublin Fire Brigade said that a tent can go up in flames in less than 60 seconds.

The post reads:

'Camping? Kids camping in the garden? Fire can destroy a tent in less than 60 seconds. Never use candles in or near tents.

'Never cook inside a tent Don’t smoke inside tents. Know how to cut your way out of a tent to escape. If you catch fire: Stop, Drop and Roll!'

This comes on the back of a number of fires starting in Dublin because of the drought conditions caused by high temperatures over the last two months.

Stay safe, lads.
