Fire crews spent several hours at the scene of a fire in Ennis last night.

The alarm was raised shortly after 10pm when a passing motorist called to a house at Limerick Road. He alerted the occupants to a fire behind their home.

The emergency services were called however the fire was found to be in a shed at the rear of a property in Dalcassian Avenue.

Two units of the fire brigade from Ennis quickly brought the shed fire under control. The fire had also spread to a tank containing home heating oil however this was also quickly extinguished.

No one was injured in the incident and the fire was also prevented from spreading to a second shed.

The cause of the fire is now being investigated.
