The Habitat for Humanity got a hand from the Grand Forks Fire Department today. Habitat for Humanity builds homes for families in need. Andria Ruud and her three children are the first to receive a habitat home for 2013. The fire department spent eight hours today putting together Ruuds home. They plan on bringing in more members throughout the building process.

Darren Schmike: "We do many things throughout the year -- volunteer work throughout the year for the city and residents of the city and this is the first time we're able to have an opportunity to take advantage of this."

This is the first time the local fire department has been able to participate in Habitat for Humanity.
