Two people are feared dead after a fire ripped through a unit in Brisbane's south overnight.
Flames consumed the Browns Plains unit where a 49-year-old woman was trapped inside.
"Heard a lady screaming out for help … it was a terrifying scream," one neighbour said.
Police believe the woman's former partner gained entry to the Myola Street complex just before the fire took hold at about 4am on Monday.
The unit is gutted, with a whole level collapsed and fire investigators unable to get in on foot.
The woman, and a 49-year-old man believed to be known to her, are unaccounted for.
9News understands police attended the unit two days ago following a loud fight.
A vehicle has been seized from a shopping centre this morning in connection to the investigation.
