Three people were rescued from a hotel in Tallaght after a fire broke out on Saturday evening.

Dublin Fire Brigade said eight units attended the scene at Glashaus Hotel in Belgard Square, in addition to three ambulance crews.

In images shared on Twitter, plumes of black smoke could be seen coming from the building.

Traffic diversions were put in place by Gardaí and members of the public were asked to avoid the area to allow emergency vehicles to access the scene.

At the request of the fire brigade, Luas services between Tallaght and Belgard were suspended, however they have since resumed.

Emergency services have confirmed three people were rescued from the building and led to safety. The blaze is now under control, but fire services remain at the scene dampening down hotspots.

Firefighters also escorted those staying in the building to safe areas of the complex to retrieve their belongings.
