One News: Emergency services deal with fire in Co Louth
Gardaí and the Fire Brigade are at the scene of an overnight fire at Castle Cosy in Castlebellingham, Co Louth.
Gardaí say extensive damage was caused to the house by the fire.
An Army bomb disposal team had earlier been called in as a precaution due to safety concerns over items which may have been in the house when the fire broke out.
It is understood the owner of the house may be a collector of military artefacts.
However the team has now left the scene while officers have also taken away a number of items for further examination.
Gardaí said two men who were at the scene were not in the house at the time of the fire, but came across it and tried to extinguish it before raising the alarm.
The two men - both aged 30 - were treated for smoke inhalation at the scene.
Around 25 fire fighters were called to assist in extinguishing the blaze.
Three pump ladders, an aerial platform and a water tanker were used by the fire brigade.

Clearly Jimbo, racked with shame, is trying to fake his own death in the manner of Reggie Perrin.

Either that or he stored his vat of home brew napalm too close to the radiator.

He wasn't cooking with C4... again? Or, an ARRSE featherfart team on a jolly??
Trust the Garda do a proper forensic job, as they are sure to find all sorts of small amounts of exotic ordnance he likes to keep around as low-speed high-tech props for the gullible.

Understatement of the year (so far).

Looks like the cnut is getting a little of a public airing as the walt he is. Have a look at some of the comments. Sadly, this didn't happen on a slow news day, so it got rapidly overtaken.

I'll see if I can see more in the local paper's online editions if they have em. I posted a link to an article where some of the comments featured arrsepedia article links and a pasting of Shortt, though I think due to me having so few posts, it's still in moderation.

January 6th is Twelfth Night, the official end of the Christmas season. It is considered unlucky to leave up Christmas decorations after this. Christmas decorations are a major contributory factor in house fires. Make of that what you will.
