Tipp households urged to have a fire plan

The need to have a fire escape plan is being driven home to people in Tipperary.

It comes as an elderly man has perished in a house fire in Dublin last night.

Many homes are likely to be busier than usual over Christmas with family home for the holiday.

Assistant Chief Fire Officer with Tipperary Fire Service Carol Kennedy says it’s vital that everyone is familiar with what to do in the event of a fire.
