A MAN HAS been charged in connection with an investigation into a house fire in Dublin in 2018 which resulted in the death of a 44-year-old man.

The fire occurred at Oakland’s Terrace, Rathgar at around 3am on Tuesday 21 August 2018. 

Gardaí and emergency services were called to the scene of the fire and three people were taken uninjured from an upper floor.
