It has been confirmed that a second woman has died following a house fire in Letterkenny this morning.

Two women in their 20’s, understood to be sisters from a well known local family, died following the blaze at the house in Ceannan View in the Carnamuggagh area of the town.

The first victim was pronounced dead after being taken from the house this morning.

A second woman was left fighting for her life in Letterkenny General Hospital but passed away later.

The alarm was raised at approximately 11am by another occupant at the house, a male, who was uninjured in the incident.

Gardai have sealed off the area to allow a full forensic investigation to take place.

It is understood that they are not treating the fire as suspicious.
