Flights at Dublin airport were temporarily suspended yesterday morning due to a fire in the roof of a hangar. The airport confirmed it was a restricted area, separate from passenger facilities.
Fire crews were at the scene shortly after 7.15 am when the alarm was raised and flights were suspended at 7.25 for about 90 minutes. The airport said it regretted “any inconvenience to passengers". It said "knock-on delays" were likely and has advised passengers to check with their airline for flight information. There were no reports of any injuries and the aircraft in the hangar were not affected.

A number of flights were diverted to Belfast City and Shannon airports.
