The Dublin Fire Brigade says it had a busier Halloween this year than last with over 230 fire calls.

Over a 24-hour period, the organisation had 234 fire calls - 169 of which were Halloween-related. The DFB also dealt with 357 ambulance calls.

A bonfire in the middle of a road in Drimnagh and a car on fire in Finglas were among the incidents crews dealt with, however, there were no reports of staff being attacked.

October 31st is one of the busiest nights of the year for the organisation.

Separately, fire crews responded to a number of house fires last night, that saw at least one person and two dogs rescued.

Ahead of the big night, Gardaí from Ronanstown seized a large number of fireworks from a home in Dublin 22, along with over €8,000 in cash.

Gardaí and local authorities have been working for a number of weeks to remove stockpiles of bonfire material.
