Man dead following house fire

An eldery man was found dead after a house at Bellewstown, Trim on Tuesday.

The 63 year old was recovered from inside the detached cottage about 8km from Trim  on Tuesday afternoon.

A garda spokesman said a neighbour noticed there were no lights in the house and when he investigated, he found the remants of a small fire in the sitting room and the man dead on the couch.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene by a local doctor on Tuesday afternoon. There was no structural damage to the house, just some smoke damage.

The gardai were satisfied it was accidental.

A post mortem will be carried out to determine how the man died and whether the fire was the cause of his death.
