SEVEN units of Dublin Fire Brigade were on hand to battle a blaze at a restaurant in Malahide last night.

The inferno broke out at a seafood eaterie, Nautilus, in the town shortly after 8pm.

A spokesperson for Dublin Fire Brigade said five fire engines put water on the blaze.

It is believed the fire may have started in the kitchen area.

"Five of our units were active pumps, one engine operated our spilt ladders and another acted as our mobile incident unit," a fire spokesman said.

It's understood there were no customers in the restaurant when the fire broke out.

A garda spokesperson said that there were no injuries reported following the incident.

"An Garda Siochana, the ambulance and fire service were all on hand to help in the response effort," a garda spokesman said.

Malahide main street remained closed for a number of hours while firefighters tackled the blaze.

Investigations are continuing as to the exact cause of the inferno.
