Three more fires around Spring Lane halting site as gardaí continue Ellis’s Yard probe
EMERGENCY services were called to three separate fires around Spring Lane halting site today.
The halting site is located next to Ellis’s yard, a former illegal dumping ground in Ballyvolane that has been the scene of threats and arson attacks in recent weeks.
Fire crews from Ballyvolane and Anglesea St were called out to two rubbish fires and a caravan fire between 2pm and 7pm today.
Meanwhile, gardaí confirmed that no arrests have yet been made as an investigation continues into an arson attack on a security cabin at Ellis’s Yard last week.
Gardaí say residential burglaries during the winter months have been halved since a special operation was put in place targeting travelling criminals.
Residential burglaries fell by 50pc nationally between winter 2014/2015 and winter 2018/2019, according to provisional Garda figures released by the Central Statistics Office.
