A woman in her 20s has been arrested by gardaí investigating a fatal fire at an apartment complex in Mallow, Co. Cork.

The woman was arrested this afternoon in Cork City and is currently detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984, at Mallow Garda Station.

Two men died in the fire which occurred at Granary Court, Mallow, Co Cork at around midnight on Thursday.

Gardaí arrived at the scene and rescued a man and a woman from the building.

When gardaí attempted to re-enter building they were unable to do so due to excessive smoke.

The bodies of John Palmer(36) and Greg Lonergan (36) were discovered by fire fighters a short time later.
