Fire crews save three people from city blazes

THREE people are recovering today after being rescued from two separate fires in Dublin overnight.

The first blaze broke out in rented accommodation in William's Park, in Rathmines, when emergency services were called at around 9pm.

Two people on the top floor of the building had to be rescued by members of Dublin Fire Brigade from Donnybrook and Dolphin's Barn stations.

They were treated for the effects of smoke inhalation at the scene and did not require hospital treatment.

Fire crews from Tara Street and Dolphin's Barn fought the fire while the women, who suffered minor burns and smoke inhalation, was taken to St James's Hospital.
