A fire crew was forced to tackle an exploding fire in the capital on Wednesday evening.

This video, posted online by Dublin Fire Brigade, shows aerosol cans exploding as four fire engines battle to bring the blaze under control.

 

 

The fire brigade was forced to take to Twitter to warn residents near Clondalkin Industrial Estate in West Dublin not to be alarmed.

A spokesperson wrote: "We've 4 fire engines at a fire in a yard in #Clondalkin. The loud bangs are aerosol cans, nothing to worry about."

A video of the scene was later posted online. A 'foam tender' from Tara Street station recorded temperatures of nearly 500°C at the scene.
