Dublin Fire Brigade said that eight fire units, including an aerial ladder and a foam unit were attending the scene at Sandyhills, which is located near Dublin Airport.

A massive fire that ripped through a recycling and scrap metal facility near Dublin Airport has been brought under control.

Meanwhile, Dublin Airport released a statement after many customers began to worry about their flights.

"We're getting increased water supply assistance from @Fingalcoco at the recycling plant fire in St Margarets / Sandyhill #Dublin #fire".

This was being done with close liaison with the Irish Aviation Authority.

Eight units of Dublin Fire Brigade are attending the scene as huge plumes of smoke can be seen coming from a garage surrounded by cars in the scrappage yard.

AA Roadwatch are advising motorists to drive with care, as the smoke may be affecting visibility on St Margaret's Road.

Shortly after midday, firefighters had the blaze under control.

Residents living in the area were told to close their windows to prevent smoke entering their homes.

No delays have been reported and a spokeswoman for Dublin Airport confirmed the fire was not on the airport's grounds.
