A MAN IN his 30s has been charged in connection with a house fire in Dublin which a 44-year-old man died. 

Gardaí launched an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of a 44-year-old man who died as a result of a fire at a house at Oakland’s Terrace, Dublin 6W on Tuesday 21 August 2018 at around 3am.

At the time, gardaí and emergency services were called to the scene of the fire and three people were taken uninjured from an upper floor.
