Local businesses help rebuild Scottsburg, Indiana family's home

Posted: Updated:

SCOTTSBURG, Ind. (WDRB) -- A southern Indiana family saw their house go up in flames, then, they were scammed out of thousands. Now, their lives are getting a little easier. 

The West family said a phony restoration company stole their insurance money earlier in the year.

A Pro4mance Fire and Restoration employee heard their story and decided to get some businesses together to help. After a long road, the family was given the keys to their new home on Friday. 

"It's unbelievable, really what it was. Did a great job and just come through. I couldn't ask for anything else," Donald West said.

The home is in the same location as it was before, complete with an extra bedroom and full bathroom. About 15 businesses donated their time and materials.
