Firefighters raised a ladder to pull the two adults and two small children to safety.

The family reportedly needed treatment for smoke inhalation, but are otherwise okay.

Thank goodness for first responders like firefighters Kevin Hall and Brian Lippincott, who aided in the rescue, for without them and their bravery, this story may have had a very different ending.
