Houses in Bray, Co. Wicklow have been evacuated as a gorse fire continues to burn in the area, RTÉ reports.
Earlier, DART services were suspended for the day after a fire traveled down the cliff face near the railway line. The blaze is thought to have started in front of a tent on Bray Head at around 1am on Friday morning.
The operation was suspended this afternoon as people were flying drones in the area.
We are asking that anyone in the Bray Head area who is using a drone to please stop doing so. There is a gorse fire in the area and emergency helicopters cannot safely assist in until all drones are out of the air space.
