A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after three people died in a house fire in Derrylin, County Fermanagh.
The 27-year-old was arrested at the scene and transferred to hospital for treatment.
Police say the fire was started deliberately. They were called to the house just after 7.20am.
The victims are believed to have been members of the same family and it’s understood that at least one of those who died was a child.
“We believe the fire, which has claimed at least three lives, was started deliberately,” said Det Supt Jason Murphy.
“We are continuing to thoroughly examine the scene along with our colleagues in the Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service.
“I would renew my appeal to anyone who was in the Molly Road/Doon Road area this morning to contact police. We are particularly keen to speak to anyone who was in, or travelling through Derrylin prior to the time the fire broke out at approximately 07:10.”
He added the emergency services were carrying out an “extensive examination” of the whitewashed rural bungalow to establish the cause of the blaze and determine if anyone else was involved.
