The Great Fire destroyed a popular pub in the village of Finglas in Dublin overnight.

Firefighters struggled to prevent the spread of the flames at the Bottom of the Hill bar, but the building was severely damaged.

The flames broke out shortly after 1 am in the pub at the end of Finglas Village.

Several units of the Dublin Fire Brigade from the Finglas, Phibsboro and Tara streets were on the scene all night, and only left at 7am and fought for six hours.

The metal roof on the building began to be removed from the flames, and emergency crews had to remove its part in order to protect the building.

A special ladder scale was brought from a fire station at Tara Street to fight the flames from above.

Gardai has now saved the scene and a technical inspection will be carried out to determine the cause of the fire.

The building is also occupied by fast food and bookmakers.

It is still not clear where the fire burns in the building.

The movements were set up for traffic while the flame was taking place, but the roads in the village have since been reopened.

Local independent councilor Noeleen Reilly said it was "very sad to see such damage at Bottom of the Hill in Finglas."

"The most important thing is that nobody is hurt, thinking about owners, staff and customers in this sad weather, such a place of orientation. There may be some delays for some buses in that area."

A spokeswoman for the Guard said investigations on the incident were ongoing.

"The fire took place at Main St., Finglas around 12.40 in the morning, Garda and the Dublin Fire Brigade were on site. One was injured in the incident.

"The Gardaji appeals to witnesses or anyone with information to contact Finglas Guard Station at 01 6667500."
