Firefighters fight Letterkenny fire in sweltering heat

Firefighters continue to fight a blaze that broke out on ground between Aldi and the Letterkenny Shopping Centre. 

One firefighter told the Donegal Democrat that the trees in the area caught fire. 

The trees have been covered with white foam as firefighters continue to contain the fire in the sweltering heat. 

Traffic towards both roundabouts is slow. 

It is not yet understood how the fire started.
