TWO MEN IN their 20s who were arrested this morning in connection with a house fire in Dundalk last week have been released while a file is prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions. 

Two other men, also in their 20s, who were arrested in connection to the house fire remain in custody in relation to separate matters. 

They are due to appear before Dundalk District Court at 10am tomorrow morning.

Gardaí investigating the criminal damage arrested the four men this morning.

The house in Clontygora Court in Dundalk caught fire after residents in the surrounding area reportedly heard a loud bang on 5 July.

The five occupants of the house were taken to Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital, Drogheda, with what were described as non-life threatening injuries.

No other injuries to persons was reported and the fire was extinguished by local fire services.

The house was significantly damaged during the incident. The scene was preserved for a technical examination.
