Nine children and one adult are lucky to be alive this morning, after a fire in their Hamilton mountain home yesterday afternoon.
The blaze at 53 Cardinal Drive on the central mountain was contained to a bedroom.
All were out of the house by the time the Hamilton Fire Department arrived at the scene.
One child was taken to hospital for treatment of smoke inhalation.
They range in age from toddlers to teens.
The cause of the ten thousand dollar fire has not yet been determined.
