KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

A Kansas City family was forced into the cold on Friday after an early morning fire ripped through their home and sent a man and a child to the hospital. 

The fire was reported at about 12:51 a.m. at a home in the 4000 block of Chestnut Street.

Officials say four adults and six children, parts of three families, were living in the house.

Firefighters had to rescue a man from a window on the second story of the home.

One of the homeowners says the hospitalized man and child are not doing well. 

The home, which was also used as a worship mission, has now been deemed unlivable.

Officials are investigating the cause of the fire. They say the flames started in the back of the home and that the families only had seconds to escape.

The families are currently staying with a neighbor. The American Red Cross is also stepping in to help.
