dublin Fire brigade have issued a stark warning to Dubliners after firefighters tackled a large illegal dumping blaze in Baldoyle overnight.

An image of the fire shows what appears to be mattresses and other such household waste set alight next to some shrubbery, which could have ended in disaster if it had spread further to nearby shrubbery.


A similar incident occurred last week in Coolock, where firefighters battled a large illegal dump fire.

Dublin Fire Brigade issued a warning on social media about illegal waste fires, which pose a serious risk of causing damage to the local environment.

They said: “Firefighters extinguished dumped waste alight in Baldoyle overnight.

“Cheap household water collections often end up being set alight like this damaging the surrounding environment.

“If it seems too good a deal it is likely that they are not legitimate waste collectors.”
