GARDAI SAVE MAN FROM MONAGHAN HOUSE FIRE Two Gardaí are being praised for their bravery, after saving a man from a house fire in Co Monaghan. The blaze broke out at a house in Upper Bree in Castleblayney in the early hours of yesterday. Two Garda officers who were called to the scene found a man trapped in an upper room. They found a ladder at a nearby house and used it to rescue him. The man – who’s in his forties – was treated at the scene by paramedics but didn’t need hospital treatment.
