A NUMBER of animals died on Friday night in a house fire in Ballyferriter, which saw two units from Kerry Fire Service called to the scene.
The fire broke out at aproximately 11.30pm and two fire service units from Dingle and Tralee tackled the blaze into the early hours of Saturday morning remaining at the scene for four hours.
