The home was in the 1200 block of Kittiwake Drive off of Chantilly Gt & Sirocco Cres.

Occupants managed to escape to the backyard in their bare feet, but they were trapped there due to the flames.

Firefighters got them out safely and they were placed on one of the trucks.

“Firefighters immediately began treating them for frostbite on their feet,” OFS reported.

Paramedics treated four people at the scene for frostbite and smoke inhalation.
