A GARDA STATION in county Monaghan has been extensively damaged in a fire.

Gardaí and fire service personnel are at the scene of the fire, which was reported at around 5.30am today, at Emyvale Garda Station.

Gardaí confirmed that “extensive damage has been caused to the building”.

The scene is being preserved so a full garda forensic examination can take place.

No injuries have been reported and investigations are continuing to establish the cause of the fire.

The station was closed and no gardaí were working there at the time the fire broke out.

Gardaí have appealed for witnesses or anyone who may have noticed anything suspicious in the area between 3am and 5.30am to come forward.

They have also appealed to motorists travelling in the area during the same time period who may have dashcam footage to contact them.

Anyone with information has been asked to contact Monaghan Garda Station on 047 77200 or the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111.
