WATCH Terrifying Fire at Dublin Hotel

The Metro Hotel have released a statement confirming that they will be closed for some time following Wednesday night's fire.

According to the NTA and local media reports, the planned metrolink measures 26 km in total length, running from Sandyford in south Dublin to beyond Swords in north Dublin.

A massive fire is ripping through a hotel in Dublin and while everyone is believed to be evacuated, it's unclear is anyone is injured.

Part of the metrolink will be built underground while part of it will be constructed above the ground, said the NTA, adding that a number of homes and commercial businesses on the ground will have to be acquired to make way for the link. "Road closures at Santry Cross as we deal with the fire".

Dublin Fire Brigade said eight fire engines, specialist fire-fighting equipment and paramedics were at the scene.

"Windows and cladding are peeling off the building and falling down onto the side wing where the hotel is", he said. "Some families were affected from the apartments above the hotel, but everyone is safe".

At least five of the top floors appeared to be destroyed in last night's fire.

He praised Dublin Fire Brigade for their hard work and commitment.

Dublin's Chief Fire Officer Patrick Fleming announced on Friday morning that there is nothing to indicate that the cause of the fire is suspicious and that it will be "several months" before the building can be returned to use.

The hotel had been used as emergency accommodation for some of Dublin's homeless.
