The road to the pier at Kincasslagh has been closed in the last few minutes (5.45pm) by fire crews battling a serious gorse fire in the Kincasslagh area.
The gorse fire has been raging since earlier today in the general Kincasslagh area.
Fire crews from Dungloe and Gaoth Dobhair together with locals are trying to extinguish the blaze but a persistent light wind is hampering their efforts.
Fire crews are currently dampening areas around houses on the pier road to prevent the flames from getting near the buildings.
Motorists and people in general are asked to avoid the area to prevent congestion until the fire is brought under control.Tags:
