Smoke billowing from the fire at Supermacs at The M1 Retail Park.
Customers, including up to 20 schoolchildren, had to be evacuated from a Supermacs fast food restaurant in the M1 Retail Park in Drogheda this afternoon when a fire broke out at the rear of the premises.
Fire Service, Ambulance and Garda personnel were in attendance at the fire, which started at around 3.00pm.
A Supermacs employee who declined to be named told Drogheda Life that the fire had started in an open area at the back of the premises and that nobody was in danger at any time.
“The fire had no effect on any of the customers” he said. “As long as nobody was hurt, that’s the main thing.”

The group of schoolchildren had been on a school outing and their bus stopped off at the café on their way home to Dunleer.
There was no sign of any structural damage to the Supermacs premises although thick smoke could be seen billowing from the building during the fire.
Louth Fire Service personnel wearing breathing apparatus could be seen checking the premises out.
