A fire has been contained at a hangar of the Dublin airport after the blaze prompted the suspension of all incoming and departing flights for about an hour.

Four fire engines were at the scene to deal with the fire, which started at 0715 local time (0615 GMT). The Dublin airport’s firefighters were also tackling the fire. No injuries have been reported.

The Dublin Airport Authority said the blaze was in a restricted area, with no passenger access, state broadcaster RTE reported.

Some flights were diverted to Belfast and Shannon from Dublin, but several planes were circling above the airport for a while, Flight Radar24 reported.
