63-year-old man dies in Galway house fire

His brother, who was also in the house at the time, escaped without serious injury.

A MAN HAS died in a house fire in Co Galway.

Gardaí say the 63-year-old was pulled from house by a neighbour during the blaze, but was pronounced dead at the scene.

Another man, said to be the deceased’s brother, escaped the incident without serious injury.

The incident occurred in Liss, close to Headford.

The 63-year-old’s body has been removed to University Hospital Galway where a post-mortem will be carried out later today.

The scene has been sealed off for a technical examination, but gardaí are currently not treating the blaze as suspicious.
