Youngsters were seen in the street wearing only their pyjamas after the incident at 11.25pm in Lancaster Crescent, in the town’s Nerston district.
Neighbours said the occupants escaped by climbing through windows to the rear of the property.
The front of the house was badly damaged, with walls knocked out and windows smashed.
Extensive damage to the interior could also be seen from the street and experts said the house had to be demolished.
An Eddie Stobart lorry was later found abandoned in a nearby supermarket car park.

The rear of the vehicle had suffered extensive damage and bricks could be seen still lying on the roof of the truck’s trailer.
Witnesses revealed the lorry was seen driving around the streets ‘at speed’ before smashing into the house.
Nearby houses were evacuated as a precaution.
Police sealed off the area but no injuries were reported and an investigation is under way.
A source said the probe is being led by a specialist team of detectives.
A witness said: ‘We stay in the street behind it and there was this almighty bang about 11.30pm.

‘I went for a walk to see what was happening and couldn’t believe what I was seeing.
The front of the house had been totally destroyed and all the neighbours were out.
‘The police turned up very quickly and evacuated other neighbours, so they weren’t taking any chances.’
A Police Scotland spokesman said: ‘The building has sustained extensive damage and local residents were evacuated as a precaution.
‘A 33-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the incident.’
A Scottish Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: ‘There were no reported casualties and firefighters made the area safe before leaving the scene.’
