article imageTyler Perry will rebuild elderly fire victim's house

By Edward Xiao     Dec 28, 2010 in Entertainment
Atlanta - Forty-one year old film director, actor and producer Tyler Perry recently demonstrated the age-old holiday season mantra of "giving, not getting" by helping an elderly woman back on her feet after a house fire.
According to People Magazine, Rosa Lee Ransby, an 88-year old grandmother of seven, is being assisted by Perry in reconstructing her home after it was burned to the ground.
Just two days after the fires took away her house and possessions, Ransby and her great-granddaughter were living in a new house Perry rented for them.
Ransby's current rented residence is situated only a few houses down from her former house, which she had lived in for forty years.
Perry vowed to pay the bills and utilities, purchase furniture and oversee the construction of a new house on the same lot where her old house stood. As the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports, a donation drive set up by firefighters will also help get Ransby get back on track.
Todd Moore, the Coweta Fire Chief, stated, "I've been doing this a long time – seen a lot of bad things come and go – but this is special."
