Fire has completely gutted a home on McMillan Road, at Alexandra Hills overnight. 

Amazingly, the family of seven.. including a child in a wheelchair.. managed to get themselves out to safety, after their smoke alarms went off. 

Several neighbours also had to be evacuated, with fears their houses may also go up. 

It happened at around 11.30pm on Tuesday night.. paramedics took the two adults to hospital, but only as a precaution. 

The same thing happened to the same family - a single mum and her children - just 4 months ago, at Wellington Point. 

Police guarded the charred area overnight, after declaring it a crime scene.
