Three people, including child, in hospital after fire at Dublin apartments

Sixteen people spent the night in a hotel, after their homes were damaged in an apartment complex fire in Dublin.

The blaze in Geraldstown Wood in Northwood Santry took hold at about 5.10pm last evening.

A five-year-old boy was taken to Temple Street Children's Hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation, while two adult males were also hospitalised in a similar condition.

The fire engulfed two apartments but six homes are said to have been left uninhabitable as a result of it.
