Project Rebuild in high gear

STEPHENS COUNTY-- Oklahoma's Project Rebuild is giving the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition folks a run for their money.  They've recently begun rebuilding a house for Leslie Grooms.   She lost her Stephens County home to wildfires a year ago and a few weeks later, a heart attack took her husband.

They started this past Friday and in just one day; some 40-plus volunteers were able to frame the entire house.

Many of the volunteers like Chris Pack have given personal and vacation time to help a family in need.  He says he has been blessed with some construction skill and he wants to use it for good.  Pack says after hearing the losses the family suffered, there was no way he couldn't help out.

It's the very first home in the county they're tackling and they're making amazing progress.  We don't know when the house will be completely finished but at this rate, it could be in weeks rather than months.
