A fire has driven two adults and seven children from a home in Sandy Hill.
Ottawa Fire says they were called to Sweetland Avenue at about 6:30 this evening where they discovered flames in the floor area of an addition and in the crawl space below.
Firefighters had it under control quickly, but had to rip up a large section of the floor to do so.
Two of the children were guests.
Damage is estimated at 55-thousand dollars.
