Pics: Car on fire in Dublin's city centre after explosion last night
Long Lane in Dublin 8 was the scene of a dramatic incident last night that left a car in flames.
Details are still sketchy as to what exactly happened on Long Lane in Dublin's city centre last night. What we do know for sure is that at around 11pm a loud bang was heard in the area. When locals went to check, a car was spotted in flames on the street that is just off Wexford Street in the heart of the capital.
Here's the scene as captured by a nearby resident.
