AUSTIN, Texas — After two separate fires wiped out her home and her shed, an East Austin woman is getting a new house.
A fire destroyed Mary Clark's four-bedroom home in 2011. Another fire severely damaged a shed on her 21st Street property a few months ago.
Now, Cielo Property Group is donating a historic home to Clark. It once belonged to Albert Durst, the state's first African American DJ.
Clark said she is thrilled.
"I feel happy that I got a home right now," Clark said. "I don't have to sit and suffer no more, that I made it."
Cielo paid for the relocation of the home from 4th Street to 21st Street. It also plans to pay for home improvements.
