HUNTINGTON, Ind. (NBC33) - It was a day of celebration Friday in Huntington where a community came together to celebrate one family's rise from the ashes.

Back on January 29th, Tim and Melissa Ivey's home in Huntington was engulfed in flames, leaving them and their four children with nothing but the clothes on their back.

Their luck changed however thanks to the Huntington County Habitat for Humanity and a sponsorship from the General Motors Foundation.
