What happened? I live near there

Someone is holding a woman hostage in Norlane and apparently he just set the curtains on fire, this all started at 4pm ish today

A man holding a woman hostage in Geelong is believed to have set fire to the house where he is holding her, police say.

Residents holed up in their homes report the man has been coming to the front window of the home, near the corner of Rose Ave and Watsonia Ave, waving the weapon, the Geelong Advertiser reports.

"He has threatened to blow the house up and told police 'I'll blow your heads off'," one onlooker told the Geelong Advertiser.

The man is brandishing a handgun.

Ambulance officers and a fire truck have arrived at the scene.

An armoured police vehicle has driven on the property, the Geelong Advertiser reports.

Special Operations Group officers cordoned off Rose Ave and Plume St early this afternoon, warning residents in the area to stay indoors.

Police said earlier the man had been making phone calls to his family members that he had threatened to inflict self-harm.

They were using megaphone to negotiate with the man.

An armoured police vehicle has arrived at the scene and paramedics are also in attendance.
