Guinness Plant Fire ‘Under Control’


A blaze broke out at the iconic Guinness plant in Dublin city centre as workmen repaired a roof.

Crews from six units of the Dublin Fire Brigade and aerial appliances successfully battled to bring the fire under control and stop it from spreading to a nearby ammonia plant.

It is understood the blaze broke out when building materials being used by workmen to repair a felt roof with a torch caught fire.

A spokeswoman for Guinness said there was a small fire in a rarely used building where empty storage tanks are kept.

“There were no injuries to any personnel and the fire has been extinguished,” she said.

“An internal investigation is under way to find out exactly what the cause of the accident was.”

Motorists in Dublin were warned to avoid the area surrounding the Victoria Quay and gardai put diversions in place.
