A car was on fire on the Waterford road on the outskirts of Kilkenny today.
It happened at about 4pm, on the country side of the Ring Road.
The car was occupied however nobody was injured and although it's not yet known what caused the blaze, it was able to be brought under control quickly.
A stretch of road has been closed around the scene with a stop/go system in place. The system is causing some traffic so Gardaí are advising people to avoid the route if possible while they and fire personnel work to clear it.
