Another Sri Lankan Tamil asylum-seeker has attempted self-immolation in Melbourne.

The man was taken by ambulance to Dandenong Hospital late last night after he splashed petrol on himself and tried to set himself alight at his house in the south-eastern suburb of Noble Park.

House-mates doused the flames quickly, having been alerted to his plan.

He suffered minor burns to a leg and was expected to be discharged later today.

The Noble Park man, who is on a bridging visa awaiting assessment of his claim for a protection, came to Australia by boat in 2012.
