Among the rows of homes and well-manicured lawns, one house on Ellicott Drive in Warner Robins stands out.

"It brought to reality to everybody that this could happen to anybody, and it was just a travesty," says neighbor Lee Hix.

On July 30th, Jim Rogers' home burned down in what the Houston County Fire Department is calling an arson.

During the fire, neighbors were able to rescue Rogers' two dogs, and have since been watching the dogs while Rogers has been staying in a hotel.

The neighbors are now rallying to donate gift cards for temporary needs like food, clothing, and gas.  So far they've collected hundreds of dollars to help Rogers, and are planning to surprise him the next time he comes back.

If you're interested in helping out, you can contact neighbor Tina Hix at (478) 365-9559.
