A man has died after an explosion at a southeast Queensland unit complex.
The blast from the George Street unit was felt around Beenleigh about 9.15pm (AEST) on Friday.
A 62-year-old man died at the scene. However, police say he was not directly injured by the explosion and may have had a prior medical condition.
A 47-year-old man was taken to Royal Brisbane Hospital with significant burns and was in a serious condition, while four others were treated at the scene for non-life threatening injuries.
A police spokesman told AAP a gas bottle may have caused the blast, but said investigators would examine the scene on Saturday.
Sixteen residents have been evacuated from the complex, with some taking up emergency accommodation at the local PCYC.
A spokeswoman for the Department of Community Safety said one unit was destroyed in the blaze that resulted from the blast, and nine other units were damaged.
