It’s been a chaotic Halloween for emergency services who are responding to endless calls of incidents across the capital.

Earlier this evening, fire officers encountered anti-social behaviour when responding to a report of bins set alight at a flat complex in Pearse House off Hanover Street East.

But as they attempted to put out the blaze, rocks and fireworks were thrown at them. Thankfully, no members of DFB were injured in the incident and the fire was extinguished successfully.

Four fire engines attended the scene and Dublin Fire Brigade said it responded “after reports that a bonfire stockpile had been set alight”. More than 900 calls were received by the fire brigade on Halloween night last year, with 21 fire engines and 137 firefighters deployed.

Since 12pm today, the fire service said it logged 144 fire incidents on its live map, the majority of which were set alight at sunset.

In Cherry Orchard and Tallaght, DFB responded to two derelict houses set ablaze and in Santry, Finglas fire station responded to a fire inside a warehouse.

Nearby, in Fortunestown, two cars were set alight and a lamp post was knocked down which blocked the entrance to an estate and in Tallaght two tyre fires were reported, which prompted DFB to issue a warning.

“Smoke from tyres is particularly toxic and damaging to the environment. Fires like these can easily spread to houses and nearby property,” a spokesperson said.

A bonfire was also used to barricade a road in Drimnagh, but the fire service at Dolphins Barn station successfully extinguished it without further issue.
