A major fire broke out in Wexford town today..
A major fire caused significant damage to The Foggy Dew pub located on South Main Street of Wexford town today.
The fire has since been extinguished thanks to the great work completed by the local emergency services. Likewise, due to the swift action of the emergency services, no injuries have been reported.
The area had been evacuated for several hours as the emergency services battled the fire this morning at approximately 9am [Sunday].
It’s never a good time for something like this to happen and we wish the best for the business involved.
A local Wexford charity, Wexford People Helping People, has called for donations and assistance for the owner of the local establishment:
“As many if you may be aware, sadly there was a fire this morning in a local business in Wexford. The owner of this establishment has been a long standing friend to the community assisting many who may find themselves in need of assistance, we are calling out to the general public and any local business around to assist in any way possible, with food, clothes, beverages, anything would be greatly appreciated, if you can assist please private message the WPHP,” they said.
The Wexford County Council have encouraged people to avoid the area. Even though the fire is now under control, at the time of writing, there still is an “active fire on site” and work will continue into the evening.
