GARDAÍ ARE INVESTIGATING a fire in Dublin in which a 44-year-old man died.

The fire occurred at a house at Oakland’s Terrace, Dublin 6W on Tuesday at about 3am.

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

However, one man was critically injured and taken to St James’s Hospital where he died on Wednesday as a result of his injuries.

A man who was earlier arrested in connection with the blaze has been released without charge.

A file is being prepared for the DPP.

A Garda spokesperson said gardaí in Terenure are “investigating all the circumstances surrounding the death”, adding: “A full investigation is under way, the scene was sealed off and a garda technical examination was carried out.”
