A fire broke out at the Guinness factory in Dublin shortly after noon local time on Monday.  Over nine fire brigades and three rigs with aerial ladder platforms were able to contain the blaze before it spread to the ammonia plant at the site.

An official from Guinness was able to confirm that no one was hurt in the incident.

“There were no injuries to any personnel and the fire has been extinguished,” the spokeswoman said.

“An internal investigation is under way to find out exactly what the cause of the accident was.”

The fire broke out near the Victoria Quay entry to the factory, and locals in the area are being advised to keep their windows closed due to the amount of smoke in the air.

The blaze is believed to have started when felt on a roof that was being repaired by workmen caught on fire
