A family in Bethlehem is getting a new home, thanks to some fast-moving volunteers.

Habitat for Humanity of the Lehigh Valley is "blitz building" a home in the 1400 block of James Street.

Volunteers from around the region have gathered to build the home from foundation to roof in only nine days.

The home is being built for a woman and her son.
