FIRE­FIGHT­ERS ‘NOT PROP­ERLY TRAINED’ Ques­tion over blaze gear in fire probe

Bray People - - Front Page - Mary FOG­A­RTY

BRAY FIRE­FIGHT­ERS Mark O’Shaugh­nessy and Brian Mur­ray, who died in the Ade­laide Vil­las tragedy, were re­port­edly not trained in the use of the equip­ment they were us­ing on the day of a fa­tal blaze.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors are said to have dis­cov­ered that the team was us­ing a com­pressed air foam sys­tem (CAFS), which a Dublin-based fire­man said would not have been ap­pro­pri­ate for a ‘hot’ house fire.

A Bray fire­man told this news­pa­per that no train­ing on CAFS was ever de­liv­ered at the Bray sta­tion.

Two ar­rests have been made in con­nec­tion with the probe, with one more per­son ex­pected to be ques­tioned be­fore its con­clu­sion. The two peo­ple quizzed on sus­pi­cion of reck­less en­dan­ger­ment were re­leased without charge.
