Fire fighters from Cashel Fire Station tackled a gorse fire in the Killenaule area yesterday (Wednesday) morning. 

Two fire tenders from the Cashel Station were called out to the fire at Springhill, Killenaule at 8.20am yesterday. 

A Tipperary Fire Service spokesman said it took fire service personnel about two and a half hours to get the blaze under control. No one was injured but damage was caused to some trees and part of a field was scorched.
