Fire victim gets gift from Tyler Perry

Entertainment mogul Tyler Perry is offering to rebuild the home of an 88-year-old great-grandmother who lost all her belongings in a fire.

Rosa Lee Ransby and her 4-year-old great-granddaughter escaped the fire last week that destroyed her home of 40 years in Coweta County, southwest of Atlanta. Coweta County firefighters began soliciting donations, and calls flooded in.

The Atlanta-based filmmaker visited Ransby's neighborhood and pledged to rent her a house for a year, pay for her utilities, buy her furniture, and then build her a new home.

Coweta Fire Chief Todd Moore said Perry's decision “made my Christmas.”
