A Queensland woman has been accused of trying to kill a man “known to her”, after allegedly setting fire to his home.
Emergency services were called to University Drive in Meadowbrook, south of Brisbane, on Saturday morning after reports of a unit fire.
The occupant, a 26-year-old man, suffered burns to his hands and was treated at the scene.
A 30-year-old woman was rushed to hospital with “significant burns”, according to Queensland Police, and charged with attempted murder and arson late on Saturday.
“It will be alleged around 4am the woman attended a University Drive residence and threatened a man who was known to her, before deliberately setting fire to his unit,” a Queensland Police Service spokesman said.
Police say the woman resides in Marsden, about 6km west of the Meadowbrook unit.
The woman remains in hospital and is expected to appear in the Beenleigh Magistrates’ Court on Monday.
