A woman inside escaped and was treated for smoked inhalation along with a male neighbour, who was taken to hospital, and two others.

Police appealed for witnesses to the Mount Camel incident to come forward.

A spokesperson said police were working with the fire service to establish the circumstances of the fire but at this stage it was being treated as arson.
