Two men have sadly lost their lives following a house fire in the St. Coleman’s Park area of Macroom, Co. Cork, earlier today.
The alarm was raised at around 4am. Several units of the fire brigade attended the scene, and the bodies of the two men, aged in their 60s and 20s, were discovered soon after.
A woman managed to escape the blaze by jumping out of a window.
The scene has been sealed off and a technical examination of the area will take place later today. The fire is believed to have started accidentally.
