Woman charged with burning down house

A WOMAN has been charged with arson after allegedly burning down a house west of Brisbane.

The 30-year-old allegedly set fire to the Honeyeater Place home at Lowood around 8.20am on Thursday.

Despite the best efforts of firefighters to extinguish the inferno, the house sustained extensive damage.
