TWO sisters in their 20s have died in a fire in Donegal.

The fire broke out at a house in Letterkenny just after 11.30 this morning.

One of the sisters died at the scene at Ceannain View while the other woman died later at Letterkenny General Hospital.

It is understood that the two sisters were sleeping in the same room.

A man who was in another room in the house managed to escape and raise the alarm. He is not believed to have been hurt.

Gardaí have sealed off the house for a technical examination although the fire is not believed to be suspicious.
