Brother, 3, Critical After Fatal Qld Fire

A three-year-old boy remains in a critical condition after suffering extensive burns in a Queensland house fire which claimed the life of his four-year-old brother.

The boys' 34-year-old father managed to drag them from the burning timber house at Weranga in the Darling Downs on Tuesday night and all three were airlifted to Brisbane for treatment.

Brisbane's Lady Cilento Hospital confirmed the four-year-old boy died on Wednesday afternoon and his younger brother is in a critical condition.

The father is being treated at the Royal Brisbane Hospital and is in a stable condition.

Fire investigators are now combing the ruins of the house to determine what caused the blaze.

It's understood the house did not have fire alarms and all three were asleep when the fire started.
