Dublin Fire Brigade are busy bees, keeping the city under control 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

They respond to thousands of calls a week- a huge 139,000 call outs last year alone - and these peeps are experts in what they do.

Prime example: They released this mental video of drone footage of just how they tackle an apartment fire, and it's pretty full on.

The video was filmed at the recent Verdemont apartment complex fire in Blanchardstown, Co Dublin, where 100 residents where forced to evacuate.

Six fire appliances, a water-tanker and two senior officers all came to the rescue.

Check out the scene in action:

No one was injured in the fire, although four apartments are significantly damaged.

Good to know the DFB have our backs when we need them!
