The late Dr. Mitchell’s house in Kilkenny city centre went on fire this morning. Two people have been arrested in connection with the fire.  However it’s understood that they were homeless people squatting there and that the fire was set off accidentally.

The large manor-type house is situated beside John’s Bridge in the city centre.  It seems that the damage is largely confined to the roof of the building and that it can be readily repaired.
