Gardaí make arrest in Bray fire tragedy
FIREMEN LOST LIVES YOUNG WOMAN BEING DETAINED
A WOMAN in her 20s has been arrested in connection with the fire tragedy in which firemen Brian Murray and Mark O’Shaughnessy lost their lives.
The woman was yesterday (Tuesday) being held at Bray Garda Station under the provisions of Section 13 of the NonFatal Offences against the Persons Act 1997 - Reckless Endangerment.
This is the second in a series of arrests, a man in his 40s having been seized from his home early in the morning last month and detained for a day on suspicion of reckless endangerment.
A computer, phone and documents were understood to have been taken from the house. A file was sent to the DPP following questioning in that instance.
Gardaí are expected to make at least one more arrest in connection with the fatal blaze of September 2007 in with Brian (46) and Mark (25) died in an unused Bray warehouse at Adelaide Villas. The families of the deceased men have said that they hope that these arrests signal an end to the Garda investigation, which has been ongoing for 13 months. The woman can be held for up to 24 hours before being either charged or released.
The families of both men are fighting for reform within the service and to have a full-time service in Bray, as well as the introduction of a national fire authority.
