A Perth family has lost almost everything after a fire tore through their home last night.

The multi-million-dollar mansion in Mullaloo, in the city’s northern suburbs, went up in flames around 6.30pm with eleven people inside, including four children, one of whom is just four months old.

Family members said they had just finished eating dinner together when they noticed sparks coming from the ceiling.

Friday, July 19, 2019 GROVETOWN, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) -- This morning, a family is displaced from their home after it went up in flames on Ellington Drive. Fire crews were called to the scene around 1:30 and battled the blaze for about an hour.

" Up In Flames ". Keeping on the outside Glimmer in the moonlight Only shadows there dwell we are Creeping on the edge of the dark. We feel warmth in the cold corners Eyes in the back of our heads We roll out when the day's over Chasing silhouettes.

Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES) investigator Andrew Duckworth said it’s a crucial reminder about the importance of having working smoke alarms.

“Eleven lives that smoke alarm saved, so we are urging everyone to make sure their smoke alarms are working," he told 9News.

The damage bill is estimated to be around $2.2 million.

No neighbouring properties along Marjorie St were damaged but 60 homes in the area have been left without power due to the fire.

“It was not flames, it was an inferno, the whole house was one big flame,” one neighbour said.

“We didn't know anything until someone came banging on the door.”

The homeowners were too shaken to speak on camera but told 9News they are still coming to terms with the fact they’ve lost everything.

The street remains blocked off as fire investigators work to determine the exact cause of the blaze, but it is not being treated as suspicious, and no one was injured.
