Dublin City Council's being asked to carry out an urgent review of fire safety in Tyrone Place including escape routes for residents.
It's emerged those caught up in a blaze at the Inchicore flats on Monday night had to cut open locked gates to get out.
A mother and her eight year old son are still in a critical condition after the blaze at Tyrone Place on Monday night. Her two other children have been treated for injuries they sustained in the fire, which detectives are treating as suspicious.
Neighbours watched on in horror as the family were trapped by security bars across windows, and locked gates.
One of those living in the complex is Greg Bolger, who helped save the family. He explained the obstacles he faced to get them out. "For security reasons some of the apartments have bars on their balconies, but there is like a safety gate but that gate was actually locked".
"I went around the back, but the back was actually caged in so I had to get a bow snips, cut the lock, and then the gate was kind of jammed closed so I had to kick the gate to actually get it open", he explained.
At a meeting this evening, Councillors called for an urgent review of fire safety in Tyrone Place including escape routes for residents.
