Franklin County commissioners committed $10,000 from the Housing Trust Fund to Habitat for Humanity's "Phoenix House" project.

Habitat volunteers are rebuilding a home on East King Street, Chambersburg, that was destroyed by a fire earlier this year.

"This house is unusual. There are some circumstances which add to the expense," said Mark Story, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Franklin County. "One of the challenges is the lot size is not typical for a Habitat house. But we're able to do two things at once — take a property no one wants to own and rehab it, and house a family with whom we can partner."

After a large fire destroyed an East King Street home in February, Habitat for Humanity of Franklin County is planning on building a new home from the ground up.

The organization was given the final approval last week for the purchase of the property at 310 E. King St., and they plan on turning it into "The Phoenix House" to house a family of seven.
