This alarming video shows a tent engulfed in flames in the Dublin city centre.

The shocking footage was shared by North Inner City Councillor Anthony Flynn.

It is unclear if the fire was accidental but the CEO of Inner City Helping Homeless says he hoped it wasn’t “intentionally started”.

Cllr Flynn told Dublin Live: “Outreach teams were dispatched to Foley Street in Dublin 1 where a concerned member of the public had logged a call to say that tents belonging to rough sleepers were on fire.

The tents were checked to ensure nobody was in them and the fire was extinguished by DFB on arrival.

“It’s fortunate that nobody was in the tents at the time. Outreach teams are trying to establish the whereabouts of those who would normally stay in the tents.

“We are unaware if this was a malicious attack intended to cause harm. I have requested that Store Street Gardaì check the CCTV in the immediate area.

“Luckily nobody was injured and the priority must be to find a bed for those who were staying here.”

Earlier this evening we reported how a council road sweeper went up in flames on Moore Street. 138333519466

A video of the blaze was shared by Feed Our Homeless founder Tony Walsh on Facebook.

The footage shows the sweeper engulfed in massive flames next to the Mobile Store on the popular street.

It is unknown how the fire started or if anybody was injured during the incident
