A woman and a five-year-old child have died in a house fire in Cork.
The blaze broke out at 0315 BST at a property in the Mahon area of the city. It is understood that eight people were in the house on Nutley Avenue.
Six managed to escape, but a 25-year-old woman and a child, who were trapped, were taken to Cork University Hospital. They later died.
A garda technical team will examine the scene later in the morning.
