Border gorse fire under control

The Fire Service in Donegal is continuing to warn about the risk of gorse fires, with the service stretched to the limits dealing with several fires in recent days.

Last night, a blaze was tackled by the North ireland Fire and Rescue Service on the Tyrone-Donegal border close to Castlefinn, with concern for a time that a number of houses could be threatened.

However, the blaze was brought under control, and the Donegal Fire Service did not have to be called.
