An ex-girlfriend has died after she stormed her former lover’s home, doused the place in petrol and set him and his new partner on fire. 

Police allege the woman, 31, broke into her ex-boyfriend Stanley Obi’s house on Bidyan Boulevard in New Beith, near Logan in Brisbane‘s southern suburbs, at 2.55 on Thursday morning. 

The woman, who has not been formally identified, died in the blaze and Mr Obi, 33, was taken to Royal Brisbane Hospital with burns to 90 per cent of his body.

Officers who arrived on the scene had to hose him down. 

It is understood he may not survive and is in severe pain.

Mr Obi’s current girlfriend, 30, and three children aged five, three and two escaped the residence without injury.

They have been taken to the Royal Brisbane Hospital for observation.

Police said in a press conference on Thursday morning that Mr Obi and his partner had lived in the house for about six months. 

Detectives are yet to interview the surviving woman and have appealed to the public for information. 

Officers have had contact with the woman and her ex-partner in the past. 

Police believe the blaze at the Bidyan Boulevard property is suspicious and are investigating whether it is the result of a domestic violence incident

One resident said fire trucks and police sirens woke him up at 3am. 

‘Could see the fire from mine, easy 10 metres high,’ he wrote on social media. 

A spokesman from Queensland Fire and Emergency Services told Daily Mail Australia the property was ‘well engulfed’ when four crews arrived on the scene.

‘There was a partial roof collapse,’ he said. 

Fire fighters spent more than two hours trying to douse the flames.  

A crime scene has been declared at the scene with forensic detectives expected to attend this morning.
