A year after fire, family ready to return
by Alison Rooney
After months of site preparation and the laying of a new foundation, a new home for the Santos family arrived on Parrott Street on April 18. Constructed by Westchester Modular Homes, the home was put into place one floor at a time using a crane — a sight both surreal and spectacular.
The Santos’ lost their home to a fire in May 2015 and have been living in temporary quarters in the home or with neighbors. Family members and neighbors watched the installation of the home together, from across the street: a far happier occasion than the last time they were gathered in that spot.
