Some Twitter folks are saying that the fire is an apartment above the hotel. The footage seems to have it lower.....

SF's Lynn Boylan says on Twitter that there are lots of families in emergency accommodation there.....:-(
There is unfortunately .

If any of them are hurt or worst, FG along with the Construction Industry Federation and the speculators/ developers have blood on their hands.

It's not just FG. Many parties have played a role in the crisis and this is neither the time nor the thread to push a narrow political agenda.

And that's the likely problem
Families like that can't afford to be dining in hotel restaurants so they cook their own with a portable gas stove
Incidents like this are inevitable in such circumstances

Boll1x. FG's policy put families at risk in this disaster.

Going through 6 floors Twitter says.

How fire proof is a building like this?

No word of any injuries, hopefully that's a good sign and everyone is out and safe. :|

You never miss a chance to drag out your wee soapbox, do you? Dance away - but you might find post 35 a little......disappointing.

There are no homeless in that hotel.

SF out with the "Oh we told you so" housing crisis banter already.

No homeless housed in this hotel. Looking like everyone may have gotten out.

If I lean slightly to the left I can see the red aircraft beacon flashing on top of the roof of the building.. it's still flashing and the helicopter that was hovering is gone now.
That,s a relief.

Irish helicopter pilots have a habit of to flying into high rise objects as we saw of the Mayo coast..
