Fire at Dublin Airport contained after all flights were suspended for 1 hour

FLIGHTS have resumed at Dublin Airport after a fire in a hangar was brought under control.

Despite initial warnings that flights in and out of Dublin could be delayed by several hours, possibly up to midday, air traffic controllers were preparing to clear backlogs before 9am.

Services in and out of the airport were suspended after the incident, with officials urging passengers to contact their airline for the most up-to-date information.

Airport fire crews were tasked to the hangar after the blaze was reported at around 7am.

The fire broke out in the roof of hangar three towards the rear of the airport grounds and it was contained in just over an hour.

The DAA confirmed 10 flights due to land at the airport while the fire was being fought were diverted, with six landing at Shannon and four in Belfast.

Three services were cancelled.

The Dublin Airport Authority said its own crews were first on scene with other units from Dublin dispatched.
