Man killed in house blaze

A man died yesterday when fire ripped through his rented home.

The fire -- at a bungalow on Ash Street in Youghal, Co Cork -- was detected shortly after 11.30am.

Two units of Youghal fire brigade raced to the scene and brought the blaze under control within minutes.

The body of a man in his 40s was found in a back room.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene by a local GP.

A full post-mortem examination was scheduled to commence last night.
