Fire Services and Kilcullen Gardai are investigating a fire which broke out near Dunlea’s Garage on the outskirts of the town at 5pm on Sunday, August 14.

The house was very badly damaged in the blaze although luckily the owner of the house was not in the house at the time of the fire and there were no injuries.

Surrounding buildings, including Dunlea’s garage were not damaged.

It is believed that the fire started in waste beside the house before spreading to the house.

Kilcullen Gardai are appealing for anyone who may have seen anything unusual in the area at the time to contact themselves or Naas Garda Station.
