Two men have died in a fire at a block of apartments in Mallow, Co Cork.
The alarm was raised shortly after midnight when smoke was seen coming from the Granary Court apartments on St Joseph’s Road.
Gardaí rescued a man and woman from the building but excessive smoke prevented officers from re-entering the scene.
Two men were found dead by fire service personnel a short time later.
Both victims have been removed to the morgue at Cork University Hospital where post mortems will be carried out.
