An investigation is under way after a fire ripped through one of Co Mayo's most historic homes.

Bridgemount House in Belcarra, near Castlebar, was extensively damaged after a fire broke out shortly after 8pm on Tuesday.

The home was occupied by a local family who were renting the property from former solicitor Jacqueline Durcan.
