Despite the fire and thick smoke, both Gardaí entered to secure the property.

After clearing the building, they discovered that thankfully no-one needed to be brought to safety and the fire was then brought under control by fire services.

Garda Dardis and Garda Todd were both treated for smoke inhalation in our Lady of Lourdes Hospital Drogheda, kept overnight, and are now continuing their recovery at home.
