Gorse fires in West Donegal have claimed land and even threatened certain properties.

The fires are believed to have started this morning and due to the high temperatures, are continuing to rage on.

Located between Loughanure and Annagry, some members of the public took matters into their own hands to extinguish the flames.

One fireman working at the scene said it was one of the "most dangerous" fires he'd seen.
