COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) - Ten western Iowa firefighters spent their day off helping renovate a Habitat for Humanity home for a mother and her child.

The Daily Nonpareil reports (https://bit.ly/1r8xg9u ) that the off-duty firefighters showed up Friday to spent the day working with Council Bluffs Habitat for Humanity officials on the refurbished home on Fourth Avenue. The firefighters hung siding and attached shingles on the main home and a backyard shed.

Council Bluffs Habitat for Humanity Construction Manager Teresa Johnson says the volunteers were a big help.

Johnson says the house was originally built in the 1930s and a mother and child will move in later this summer. Now that the firefighters have finished the roof and siding, other volunteers, Habitat officials and the mother will do some painting and cabinet work.
