Volunteers rebuild elderly man's burned down home
July 9, 2013
Almost one year ago Vernon Freeman’s house burned down due an electrical fire and he was forced to leave. This week he returned to a completely rebuilt and remodeled home, thanks to a team of dedicated volunteers.
For months, the 85-year-old would sit outside his burned-out residence. He had no insurance, but didn't want to leave his home.
After Freeman's story appeared on Dallas News 8 last September, volunteers and companies began stepping up, working on the weekends to rebuild his home.
