Derrylin fire claims three lives

Emergency services at a house in Derrylin Fermanagh

Police believe a house fire in Co Fermanagh in which at least three people died on Tuesday was started deliberately.

Those killed were a mother and her two children originally from Doncaster in England who had previously lived in Tralee in Kerry before moving to Fermanagh around 12 months ago.

Firefighters were called to the blaze on Molly Road at 7.14am today as flames consumed the house, leaving only the smouldering shell of the building standing.

The fire has now been extinguished and police and fire officers are working to determine if anyone else was involved in the incident, in the area of Doon Road and Molly Road.

Det Supt Jason Murphy said the PSNI "believe the fire, which has claimed at least three lives, was started deliberately".

2 Appliances from Lisnaskea and 1 from Enniskillen attended the scene.

Emergency services were informed about a "well-developed" fire at a separated small house in Derrylin. We are particularly keen to speak to anyone who was in, or travelling through Derrylin between midnight and the time the fire broke out.

"The thoughts of NIFRS are with the family, friends and local community at this time", a spokesman said.

"My thoughts and prayers are, of course, with the family; with the community out there in Derrylin who I am sure will rally around at this very hard time". "God help them all", she said.
