Detectives from Logan have arrested a 24-year-old Ipswich woman and charged her with arson after a unit was destroyed by fire in Beenleigh overnight (November 20).

Police were called to the complex on Main Street at 9.45pm and found the unit in flames.

The occupant of the unit, a 32-year-old man was not inside at the time of the fire and was not physically injured.
