Investigations underway after fire in Dublin's Burlington hotel

Investigations are underway into the cause of a fire at the Burlington Hotel in Dublin.

Emergency services were called to the scene at around 5.10am this morning after a blaze broke out on the sixth floor of the hotel.

Three people were injured - but two of those who sustained injuries are not believed to be related to the fire.

Initial inspections indicate that the blaze may have been caused by a fridge in one of the rooms.

A DT Hotel spokesperson said, “We can confirm that earlier today there was a minor incident at the DT Hotel (formerly the Burlington) which led to the hotel being evacuated as a precautionary measure and the authorities alerted immediately.

"Guests and team members, whose safety and security are always our priority, were able to re-enter the building within the hour. There were no injuries or real damage to the property and the hotel is operating as normal.”

Meanwhile Dublin Fire Brigade confirmed that they attended, "a minor incident" at the Hotel.

In a statement they said:

"Six units of the Brigade were in attendance and the hotel was evacuated after a very small fire occurred in one of the rooms which was brought under control immediately.

"No persons were injured or brought to hospital."
