Dublin Fire Brigade sees slight rise in Halloween call-outs

Dublin Fire Brigade had a very busy Halloween night receiving more than 600 calls.

Fire crews attended 232 fire calls alone, mainly dealing with bonfires and some domestic, truck and car call-outs.

Dublin fire brigade said, in general, the incidents were spread throughout the city and county with the overall number of calls slightly increased on last year.
