Flights from Dublin Airport were suspended this morning after a fire broke out.

Pictures from the scene appeared to show flames engulfing a hangar at the airport.

According to Sky News, two planes were inside the building at the time.

There have been no reports of any injuries and the fire is now under control.

Dublin Fire Brigade confirmed that four pumps attended the scene.

According to the BBC, the Dublin Airport Authority said the fire was in a restricted area, separate from passengers.

Anyone planning to travel today have been urged to contact their airline for the latest information on departures.

A number incoming flights have been diverted to other airports.

An airport spokeswoman said: "All flight operations were suspended because all emergency services have been brought to fight the fire and as a result if something happens on the airfield the fire cover is not available.

"This is standard procedure."
