Firefighters battle blaze at creche in Ireland

FIREFIGHTERS have battled a blaze at a creche in Ireland earlier today. 

According to TheJournal, around 100 children were evacuated from the Limerick creche this morning following a small fire at the childcare facility.

The children were moved to safety from the crèche, located at Annacotty Business Park.

There are no reported injuries from the fire.

Limerick Fire Control told the news site it received a 999 call at 11.48am and dispatched four units from Limerick City Fire Service to the scene of the “commercial fire”.

Firefighters have brought the small fire under control but are remaining at the crèche as a precaution.

It's believed the fire may have started in the fuse board.
