A red forest fire warning is currently in place across Ireland.

The Department of Agriculture  says under extreme fire risk conditions, fires will start and spread easily with real threats to nature, property and life.

The alert will remain in place until midday tomorrow.

The Department of Agriculture says that, based on recent fire incidents, most appear to be associated with deliberate ignitions in areas where active turf cutting or illegal waste dumping is taking place.
