Fire disrupts Dun Laoghaire festival

The Festival of World Cultures was disrupted when a fire broke out in Dun Laoghaire’s Pavilion complex yesterday.

Reports that the fire started in the car park or that any cars caught on fire were not accurate, said Garda Superintendent Martin Fitzgerald at the scene. He said the confusion was likely down to the large amount of smoke generated by the fire.

He said the fire originated at an electric circuit board in the Crunch Fitness Premier gym at around 5.30pm.

People were evacuated from the gym, The Forty Foot bar, and The Pavilion Theatre. Marine Road was closed off for a number of hours. The Dublin Fire Brigade gave the all clear after 8pm.

The main damage was to electrical cables and smoke damage while no structural damage was detected.
