Man, 44, dies in suspicious Dublin house blaze as Gardaí make arrest

A MAN has been arrested by Gardaí following a fatal house fire in Dublin.

The blaze occurred at a house on Oaklands Terrace in Terenure, Dublin 6 shortly after 3am on Tuesday morning.

A 44-year-old man was taken from the house in a critical condition and later died at St James's Hospital on Wednesday.

The man was named last night as Ohari Cadio Viera, who is understood to be an Irish citizen but is not from Ireland originally.

Three other people were rescued uninjured from the upper floor of the property by firefighters.
