Tyler Perry gives Georgia fire victim's a new home
ATLANTA (KABC) -- Filmmaker Tyler Perry made good on his Christmas promise to rebuild the home of an 88-year-old woman after it was destroyed in a fire.
Perry handed over the keys to Rosa Lee Ransby's new four-bedroom home during a ceremony Friday in rural Coweta County, southwest of Atlanta.
Ransby and her seven grand- and great-grandchildren lost their home in a fire a week before Christmas. They all got out safely, but lost everything they owned.
After seeing the story on a local TV newscast, Perry pledged to rebuild the house and fully furnish it. He said the main thing was getting her enough space for the children and for them to have room to play.
