A 20-year-old Hobart woman is in an induced coma in a Melbourne hospital with burns to more than half her body after allegedly being set on fire by her partner.
Nicole Evans was flown to Melbourne in a critical condition early on Tuesday and will require "many months" of medical treatment after undergoing surgery.
It's alleged her 34-year-old boyfriend, Matthew John Davey, doused her with an accelerant and set her alight in a backyard shed.
He has been charged with causing grievous bodily harm and other matters.
Ms Evans underwent surgery at The Alfred hospital on Thursday and is in an induced coma in a critical but stable condition.
A GoFundMe page has been set up for Ms Evans by Hobart woman Sheena Mclean, who describes Ms Evans as "a true beauty" and "a gorgeous person".
As of Thursday night, the page had raised more than $3600.
