A man has, sadly, lost his life following a house fire in Co Tipperary, which is believed to have broken out sometime before noon today.

Units from Thurles fire Brigade were summoned by a passer-by, to the scene of the fire, which began in a bungalow near the village of Ballingarry (South Riding), Thurles, Co Tipperary.

When the house was examined by fire crew; the fire having been quickly extinguished, the body of a man was discovered inside, believed to be aged in his 40s. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
