Police investigating the arson of an apartment in Logan Central have released CCTV footage and are appealing for any information that may lead to identifying the alleged offender.

Around 6:35am on September 10, police and emergency services were called to an apartment complex on Croyden Road, Logan Central, following reports of smoke coming from one of the apartments.

The fire was quickly extinguished. Three people were treated for smoke inhalation and transported to hospital. Thankfully, no serious injuries were sustained.
