Limerick Fire Service are at the scene of the fire in Castletroy
EMERGENCY services are at the scene of a fire involving two houses in a Limerick city suburb this Wednesday evening.
Four appliances from Limerick city have responded to the blaze at Hazelwood, Castletroy.
“We have been alerted that there are two houses on fire in Hazelwood, Castletroy. The alarm was raised at 18.08,” said a spokesperson for the fire service.
In a video uploaded to social media by reporter Ryan O'Rourke smoke can be seen billowing from the downstairs and upstairs windows of one semi-detached house in the estate which appears to be severely damaged as a result of the blaze. The adjoining house has suffered less damage.
