Fire Red Rock Sutton
Howth Coast Guard were tasked last night, Monday, at 20.09 to what was initially thought to be a vessel on fire in Dublin Bay. A member of the public had contacted the Coast Guard National Maritime Operations Centre on 112 and reported heavy smoke which appeared to be coming from the sea. On investigation the CG unit discovered it was a gorse fire at Red Rock near the Martello tower at Sutton. Dublin Fire Brigade were on scene and controlling the fire.
