A TWO-YEAR-old boy has died following a house fire in Cork in the early hours of this morning.

The fire broke out at a house at Elm Park in Wilton, and the alarm was raised at around 4am.

A woman in her late twenties and her two sons, aged two and four, were removed from the house, and CPR was administered at the scene. The three were taken to Cork University Hospital, where the two-year-old lost his fight for life.

The woman and the four-year-old boy remain in a serious condition.

An examination of the scene will be carried out later today.
