The Dublin Fire Brigade have put out a number of fires that started yesterday evening.

Several fire engines were at the scene in the Barnacullia and Glencullen areas to battle the blazes which may have started as a result of the recent dry, warm weather.

The Department of Agricutlure have issued an Orange warning until Thursday which says there is a "a high fire risk is forecast in all areas where hazardous fuels exist" due to the warm weather.
