The Trinity Fire Brigade said on Saturday it had been forced to close down a nearby road after it was “virtually impossible” to put out the blaze.
It said the fire had started in the car park at the fire station at the north of the city and it was a “high risk” of spread of the fire.
The brigade said the carpark was “uninhabitable” but there were “plenty of resources” available for the fire brigade to put it out.
“As the brigade was unable to put the fire out before it reached the car parks frontage road, we closed the main entrance and closed the road to traffic,” a statement from the brigade read.
The fire brigade said there were no fatalities or serious injuries but the fire was now “almost impossible to put to bed”.
“In a similar situation we would be doing the same, except we have got the fire under control, we have not had any injuries and no danger to anyone,” the statement read.
“Our resources are on hand to ensure the safety of those who have the firefighting training required to tackle it.”
A fire at a dairy in the city’s north has killed three people and injured nine others.
The Trinity Fire Department said on Friday that it had stopped its response to the fire at the St Andrew’s Dairy.
The dairy is in the area of Kildare Street and South Road.
Trinity Council said it had ordered the dairy to be shut down.
“Trinity’s primary concern has always been the safety and wellbeing of its residents and visitors to the area,” it said in a statement.
“The safety and well-being of those in the community has always and will always be the primary concern of Trinity’s residents.”
Trinity Mayor Michael O’Connor said he was devastated by the fire and his “heart goes out to the families and friends of those affected by this tragic accident”.
“I am deeply saddened by the loss of three of our residents and my thoughts are with the families of those injured and the community as they recover from this terrible incident,” he said.
