Gardaí are investigating the circumstances surrounding a fire in a Dublin home which may have been started maliciously, the Irish Independent reports.
The incident occurred in Ballyfermot at around 1.30am last night at a home which a young family recently moved into after spending two years living in a hotel. None of the members of the family were in the house at the time of the fire.
A Garda spokesman said:
"Gardaí were called to a fire at a house in Ballyfermot, at approximately 1:30am today. Dublin Fire Brigade also attended. A technical examination will take place today and this will determine the course of the investigation."
