GARDAÍ IN CO CLARE are investigating the circumstances of an early-morning house fire in the country, in which two men were killed.

Officers from the Ennis station discovered the bodies of the two men when they were called to the site of the fire at Boston, Tubber this morning, after the fire was discovered at about 7:30am.

The deceased men are thought to have been in their 60s and 30s. Their bodies remain at the scene and will later be brought to the Mid-Western General Hospital in Limerick for a post-mortem examination.

The scene of the fire remains sealed off, however, for a technical examination as Gardaí try to identify the cause of the blaze.

Officers have appealed for witnesses to come forward; Ennis Garda station can be contacted at (065) 6848100.
