Dublin Fire Brigade spent most of last night battling a huge gorse fire in Howth.
Four units from the Dublin Fire Brigade were called at 5:30pm to deal with the fire which was spreading across Howth head. They used a drone to keep an eye on it for fears that it would spread to houses nearby.
Thankfully, no one was hurt.
They’ve shared some videos and images and they look terrifying.
