Woman died in Tramore House Fire

A woman in her late forties has died in a house fire in Tramore, County Waterford. The blaze was reported at 11.50 p.m. last night at a house in Herons Hill, Knockenduff. Attempts to rescue the woman failed and she was pronounced dead at the scene shortly after 1 a.m. this morning.

The woman is understood to have been living in Tramore for a number of years. A man in his forties was taken from the same house to Waterford Regional Hospital (left), where he is being treated for minor burns and for smoke inhalation.

Four Gardaí were also taken to hospital and treated for smoke inhalation, and three of them have since been released.

The cause of the fire is now under investigation and Gardaí are carrying out a technical examination of the house which was extensively damaged in the fire.
