A terraced house on Shannon Hill went up in smoke last week and was left completely gutted.
Two tenders from the fire station at Lymington Road attended the scene last Tuesday for a couple of hours.
Gardaí were also called to the incident at the house called Quote Manderley', which was not occupied.
No immediate cause for the blaze was obvious after the flames had died down.
The destroyed house was one of a number of semi-derelict properties in a line including the former Croppy Boy shop.
Fire fighting personnel managed to save much of the structure of Quote Manderley' but the interior was ruined in the outbreak.
