Gardai investigate forest fire at 10 year old plantation.

A forest fire that destroyed 25 acres of forestry is believed to have been started deliberately. The fire at the 10 year old plantation caused 60,000 euro worth of damage and gardai are now investigating the incident. Up to 10 fire fighters and a group of locals spent two hours bringing the blaze under control. According to Conor Daly of SWS forestry services this was a callous act that could have been much more serious were it not for the efforts of fire fighters and locals.
