Psychiatric tests after house fire


A SOMERVILLE woman, 34, was taken to Frankston Hospital for psychiatric assessment after the house she lived in with her 12-year-old son caught fire yesterday, Monday 13 August.

The Deanswood Drive house was “partially alight” when police and Somerville CFA units arrived at 9am, Sergeant John Coburn, of Somerville CIU, said.

The boy was also taken to hospital as a precaution but did not appear injured.

No charges have been laid and an arson chemist has been called in to investigate the circumstances surrounding the fire.
