The funeral of a mother-of-four who died in a blaze in the garage of her home is taking place today.

Siobhan Devlin was discovered at her home in Oakleigh Park, off the Brownstown Road in Portadown, Co Armagh, on Monday after a blaze began at around 7am.

Teams of police, fire and forensic workers closed off the road and examined the scene.

Mrs Devlin is survived by her husband Patrick and her four children, Niamh, Cliodhna, Odhran and Aoife.

The Requiem Mass will take place at the Church of St John the Baptist, Drumcree, at 11am. Mrs Devlin will be buried afterwards in the adjoining cemetery.

Mrs Devlin was described by local residents as a "lovely woman" from "a very good family".

Neighbours recalled the "terrifying" scenes they awoke to on the fateful morning.

One local resident told the Belfast Telegraph that he didn't think they would ever get over it.

A spokeswoman for Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service said the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
