Firefighters succeeded in bringing a major fire under control when a blaze broke out on Friday evening and up to four vehicles were engulfed in a multi-storey car park at the Stonebridge in Wexford town.
Emergency services were alerted by members of the public who observed the fire at around 5pm.
Three units of Wexford Fire Service were quickly summoned. Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus ensured that all people inside the building known as Talbot Suites were evacuated as quickly as possible.
Assistant Chief Fire Officer, Ray Murphy, said the fire “started in one car” and quickly spread to other vehicles parked close by.”
The blaze was brought under control within an hour, but firefighters remained at the scene to dampen down the area. No injuries were reported.
