There's been no significant damage done to an Offaly hospital after a fire yesterday.

The incident occurred after electrical equipment malfunctioned in a coms room, causing smoke to extend to the corridors.

The HSE says eight patients were evacuated for a short time, in line with the fire safety policies, but no injuries were reported.

The fire service used positive pressure ventilation fans to remove smoke and make the area safe.
