North Platte college students help Roundy family rebuild from fireTell North Platte what you think

Hayley, 9, Grayson, 7, and Evan Roundy, 8, of Maxwell, sit on their new deck Monday.

Second-year building construction students at North Platte Community College recently built a deck for the Roundy family, whose home near Maxwell was destroyed by fire shortly before Christmas.

Materials were provided to the students, who built the deck in a community service project, spokeswoman Heather Johnson said.

The deck serves as a link between two campers where family members have lived since their home was destroyed.

David and Josie Roundy have seven children with them, ages 14, 10, 9, 8, 8, 2 and 2.

The home is two miles southwest of Maxwell on West Island Road. The temperature was around 12 degrees when the fire broke out around 3 a.m. Dec. 9.

The Maxwell fire department answered the call, joined by the Brady and North Platte fire departments, but only the walls and a caved-in roof remained when the fire was extinguished.

The family left the house in their pajamas, although some were able to put on shoes and winter coats. Within a couple days, the campers were moved in and the family began to rebuild from their losses.
