MAN DIES IN HOUSE FIRE IN CO. WICKLOW

A man has died in what Gardaí are calling a “suspicious” house fire in Bray in County Wicklow.

The fire broke out at a house at Oldcourt Avenue shortly before 4.30 this morning.

A 55-year-old man was taken from the house – and was given CPR – however he was pronounced dead at the scene.

A man in his 20s – who was also in the house – was not injured.

The scene is sealed off for a technical examination – and the victim’s body remains at the house.

The office of the State Pathologist has also been notified.

Gardaí will now turn to working out the cause of the fire – they’re appealing to anyone who may have seen any suspicious behaviour in the area before 4.30 this morning to come forward.
