Dublin Fire Brigade have been battling a blaze in Howth.

It broke out on board a boat this morning.

The alarm was raised at around twenty past seven this morning - when a boat moored at the pier wall in Howth caught fire.

20 members of Dublin Fire Brigade attended the scene, with a number of them using breathing apparatus to enter the engine room.

Crews say they brought the blaze under control quite quickly.

Three fishermen were treated for smoke inhalation, but didn't go to hospital.
