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.
