A Saddle Brook family narrowly escaped a house fire on Saturday.

The Montalbanos' Hayes Drive house was destroyed after a backyard fire spread, leaving the occupants with no time to remove their personal belongings, according to a GoFundMe.

Family members living at the residence including parents Lynda and Mike Montalbano, their pregnant daughter Brittany (and her husband Joe and their daughter Kiara), daughter Gianna (and her son Mike) as well as Mike's fiance Jessica and their son, Jagger.

More than $1,200 had been raised on the GoFundMe as of Sunday afternoon.

"Lynda and Mike are two parents who endlessly go above and beyond for their children and their families," the page says. "They do all within their means to support and cherish the world that the two have built around them."
