Gardaí attended the scene along with emergency services at about 2.20am and Dublin Fire Brigade extinguished the fire.

A Garda spokesman said the man was taken to nearby Beaumont Hospital for treatment and that a number of the other occupants of the house were also taken to the hospital for “treatment of non-life threatening injuries”.

The scene was preserved for a time to allow for a technical examination to be conducted.
