A LIMERICK hotel had to be evacuated as a precaution due to a small fire this Thursday afternoon.

Limerick Fire and Rescue Service were called to the Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa Limerick shortly after 5pm.

An issue had arisen with a tumbledryer in the laundry area of the spa. The main hotel was not affected by any smoke.

On arrival the firefighters quickly made the area safe.

The hotel is currently home to over 100 Ukrainian Refugees.
