People living in the vicinity of a fire near Dublin Airport are being advised to close their windows to prevent smoke entering their home.

Eight units of Dublin Fire Brigade are at the scene off the Ballymum Road in St Margarets.

There's a large plume of smoke but an airport official says it's not having an effect on flights.

People with breathing difficulties are being advised to avoid the area and motorists should approach with care.
