Fire causes suspension of operations at Dublin Airport; some flights diverted

Dublin Airport says that flight operations have been suspended because of serious fire in a hangar.

The airport's online arrivals and departure boards indicated that operations were suspended at around 0625 GMT.

Irish broadcaster RTE said some flights were being diverted to Shannon in western Ireland or Belfast in Northern Ireland.

Dublin Airport said the fire was in a restricted area which is separate from passenger facilities. Dublin Fire Brigade said at least four engines had been sent to the scene.
