Man Looses Life In Nenagh Fire

Nenagh Gardaí are currently investigating a serious fire in a derelict premises on Kenyon Street in the North Tipperary town, which cost one man his life.

The blaze was discovered in the early hours of this morning, and the deceased, named locally as Mr Kryztof Sec, a homeless foreign national, has since been removed to Limerick Hospital, where a post-mortem is expected to take place today.

The fire broke out in a disused former public house and was reported by a passer-by at around 1.05am. Two units of Nenagh Fire Service, in conjunction with one Fire Service unit from Cloughjordan, Co. Tipperary, attended at the scene.

While fighting the blaze, fire fighters discovered the body of a man, believed to be in his late 40’s, within the precincts of the burning premises, while a second male; also within the premises at the time of the blaze, managed to escape with minor injuries, latter which were attended too at Limerick University hospital.

Firefighters attended the scene until 11.55am today and the building has since been sealed off by Gardaí for a technical examination, during which it is hoped the original cause of the fire can be established.
