Huge fire rips through hangar at Dublin Airport, forcing flights to be suspended

Dublin Airport fire forces flights to be suspended

Air traffic has resumed at Dublin Airport, after being temporarily suspended due to a fire in one of the hangars this morning. 
The alarm was raised shortly after 7.15am and a number of emergency service crews were called in to deal with the fire. 

All flights were suspended until 9am, and it is likely to be a knock-on effect, causing delays to flights in and out of Dublin on Wednesday.
'The fire was in a restricted area, which is separate from the passenger facilities,' Dublin Airport said in a statement.
'As all of our fire crews were dealing with the incident, flight operations were temporarily suspended.' 
Dublin Fire Brigade confirmed that units from its headquarters as well as Finglas, Kilbarrack and Swords attended the fire. 
Passengers are advised to check online or with their airline for flight information.
