Queensland landlord 'expected family to live among toxic soot'

  Queensland landlord 'expected family to live among toxic soot' A Queensland landlord allegedly expected a single mother to continue to live in a home rendered toxic by a battery fire. Logan mum Hazel Ball's life was turned upside down after a charging lithium battery ignited while she was out of the house.CCTV shows the start of the blaze as smoke billows from each side of the house.Fire crews quickly extinguished the blaze but it had burned for long enough to fill the entire house with toxic smoke.White streaks remain throughout the house — on light fittings, smoke alarms, air conditioners and even inside the pantry — where toxic dust was attempted to be wiped away.

A blaze that sent flames shooting through the roof of a factory in Melbourne 's south-east this morning is being treated as suspicious , fire authorities say.

A ferocious fire that tore through a Port Melbourne home overnight, spreading quickly to neighbouring properties, has been deemed suspicious . Firefighters were called to Station Street in Port Melbourne just after 2.30am, and quickly upgraded the severity of the blaze after a number of calls from nearby residents. Around 30 Metropolitan Fire Brigade members fought the blaze and managed to bring it under control in about an hour. The home, which was under renovation, was completely destroyed, while the flames spread to neighbouring properties on both sides and caused extensive damage.
