Elderly woman perishes in Logan house fire

An elderly woman has died, after an early morning fire at a home in Logan.

Emergency services were called to the property in Logan just after 1.30am, where firefighters broke in through the front and back doors.

The 73-year-old occupant had to be dragged out of the burning building.


Acting Senior Sergeant Lawrie Catterson has told Sunrise there was little they could do to save her.

“A single female was located inside the dwelling by the fire fighters who forced entry through the front and the rear.

“The female was brought out to the front of the dwelling where paramedics performed CPR on her, but sadly she passed away at the scene,” Senior Sergeant Catterson said.

Investigations are now underway, with investigators looking into whether or not a lit cigarette may’ve caused the blaze.
