Gardaí say it may take a number of days before the site of a fire at a Dublin recycling centre can be made safe for examination.

The fire broke out at Thornton's recycling centre in Ballyfermot shortly after 7.30 last night.

Eight units of Dublin Fire Brigade attended the scene, with firefighters pumping water from the Grand Canal to the site of the blaze.

The fire has now been brought under control but Dublin Fire Brigade remain at the scene and a Garda cordon is in place.

Local Sinn Féin councillor Daithí Doolan says it raises serious concerns about the location of the plant.

He said "The phone was hopping with residents who were concerned about the fire and we have written to the Environmental Protection Agency this Morning"

"That plant is a major recycling plant and it is in close proximity to a large residential area in Ballyfermot"
