Finally tonight, "America strong." The incredible way one community rallied around their neighbors when they needed them most.

It was a great morning. That afternoon, after a quick trip to the store, their ring camera capturing their return home. Daughter Carol opening the front door. Why is there smoke everywhere? What? Reporter: Her father Jake realizing -- The house is on fire. Reporter: The family safely evacuating. Get the dogs out! Reporter: Local firefighters working furiously to put the fire out. My whole world, everything I knew, was burning down in front of me and I couldn't do anything about it. Reporter: Nearly everything inside their Scott city, Missouri, home destroyed, including all those presents. Family members immediately getting word of the fire out on Facebook, establishing the sheren Christmas fire fund. The fire department soon posting their own message to help with clothing, bedding, and household supplies. That was an incredibly rapid response from our immediate neighbors. They started bringing things over, asking if we needed anything. The entire town helped us out. Reporter: Tonight in a rental home, the family of eight hoping to rebuild, but for now, feeling hopeful. These are the bags and boxes we haven't had a chance to go through.
