    Tyler Perry to rebuild home of elderly fire victim

    By Alison Schwartz, PEOPLE.comDecember 27, 2010 9:01 a.m. EST


    The movie mogul, 41, is reaching out to an 88-year-old great-grandmother of seven, who lost everything when her house in Coweta County -- just southwest of Atlanta -- burned to the ground, reports Atlanta's WSB-TV.

    The Atlanta-based filmmaker pledged to rent a house for Rosa Lee Ransby and her 4-year-old great-granddaughter for one year. Perry will also pay the utility bills, buy her furniture and build her a new home on the burned property.

    The rental house is just doors down from Ransby's house -- her home of 40 years, from which she escaped with her great-granddaughter on Tuesday when it caught on fire.

    Coweta County firefighters began collecting donations, and Ransby was in her temporary new home on Thursday, just 48 hours after the fire.
