A woman in her 70s is believed to be in a serious condition in hospital after a house fire in Drogheda, County Louth.

It is understood the woman was asleep when the blaze broke out at her home on the Cord Road at about 01:00 BST on Saturday.

A man in his 30s rescued the woman from the house and they were both taken to Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital.

The man was treated for injuries that are not life-threatening.

Gardai have appealed for anyone who was in the area between 00:30 and 01:00 BST on Saturday to contact them.
