Child dead in unit fire
A CHILD was killed in a fire that tore through a unit in Beenleigh, south of Brisbane, last night.
Two children and two adults were taken to hospital with injuries including burns and smoke inhalation, police said, adding that a third child was killed. Two of the patients were in critical condition.
“There were two adults and three children inside and it appears one of the children has died,” a police spokesman said.
Fire crews extinguished the blaze, which broke out about 10pm, within an hour.
