A fire fighter at the scene of the gorse fire in Letterkenny
Fire fighters are currently bringing a gorse fire under control close to a number of houses on the outskirts of Letterkenny.
The fires service was alerted to the latest gorse fire shortly after 10 pm, and a tender with six crew have been successful in putting out the blaze in the townland of Crieve Glebe.
The gorse fire broke out in a field next to a house and below three other houses.
Earlier in the day, fire crews from Killybegs, Donegal town and Glenties were called to deal with a gorse fire in Frosses.
