Mum dies af­ter unit fire


THE mother of a three-yearold boy killed in a fire south of Bris­bane has died in hos­pi­tal from in­juries she sus­tained in the blaze.

The fire, which en­gulfed the dou­ble-storey Been­leigh unit late on Sun­day night, also hos­pi­talised the boy’s fa­ther, one-year-old sis­ter and fiveyear-old brother.

Crys­tal Cartledge, who suf­fered burns to 90 per cent of her body, died in the Royal Bris­bane and Women’s Hos­pi­tal yesterday af­ter­noon.

Po­lice have not yet ruled out that the fire was de­lib­er­ately lit.
