A man has died in a fire in Dublin in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Four others were rescued from the building by two gardai on patrol on St Joseph's Avenue in Drumcondra.
Gardai said the officers saw smoke coming from a property at about 4.30am and broke into the building.
Four men who were asleep in a downstairs flat were awoken and led to safety.
Fire crews were called to tackle the blaze in an upstairs flat, where the body of a man in his 20s was found.
His remains have been removed to the city morgue and the scene has been sealed off for a forensic examination.
Meanwhile, a man from Co Roscommon has died in a fire near Perth in Western Australia.
The victim, who is in his 20s, suffered severe burns after a gas explosion in the accommodation block at the farm where he worked.
The Irish Embassy in Canberra is providing consular assistance to the family of the man, who has not yet been positively identified.
It is understood the incident happened at the Mackie hay processing plant at New Norcia, about 140km north of Perth. He was said to be in a communal kitchenette area of the portable accommodation on his own when the blast ripped through the building in the early hours of the morning.
