Listen: Kildare Fire Serivce Reports 100% Increase In Call-Outs.

: 07/12/2018 - 11:44

There's been a 100% increase in the number of Kildare Fire Service call-outs since the heatwave began.

Crews are battling fires in urban and rural locations across the county, not helped by the fact the ground and vegetation are bone dry.

A Dept. of Agriculture Status Red fire risk alert remains in effect.

Kildare's Chief Fire Officer, Celina Barrett, says a weeks' long fire at Moud's Bog continues to require attention.
