A new regulation in Ireland is forcing the use of yellow fire extinguishers, but the fire extinguiser remains grey and there is no mention of the fire brigade in the regulation.
The fire extinguishing regulations, published on Wednesday, require that all fire extinguishments be yellow.
In a separate document, the Irish Fire Brigade said it was not aware of any changes to the firefighting protocols that would require fire extinguishment to be red.
“There are no changes to fire extinguishers in Ireland,” a spokeswoman said.
“Fire extinguishers are currently yellow in Ireland, which means that they are yellow because they are required to be used to extinguish fire.
We have no idea what this means for fire extinguisers that are red.”
The Irish Fire Service said it had no comment on the new rules.
The new regulation comes amid the escalating firefighting crisis in Ireland.
On Tuesday, a fire engulfed a house in Dublin, killing four people.
On Thursday, another house fire raged in a suburb of Dublin, leaving three people dead and more than 20 people injured.
In Ireland, the worst-hit towns are Limerick, Cork and Limerick City, which have seen at least 25 deaths in the last 24 hours.
The National Fire Authority says the current firefighting situation in Ireland means firefighters are still out of control.
