HAPPY JACK, AZ - Weeks after the Tinder Fire burned thousands of acres and destroyed several dozen homes; there are some folks who still aren't able to start rebuilding.
Recently, ABC15 followed a special group of mostly veterans, Team Rubicon, as they helped neighbors in Happy Jack clear our their properties and pick up the pieces.
"You think about all the stuff you lost, and it's hard," explains Kevin Lowe, whose home was burned in the Tinder Fire.
"We're just the brute muscle," explains Magdy Zakhary, who's one of two dozen volunteers in Happy Jack this week. The group is part of Team Rubicon, an organization that pairs veterans with first responders who then get dispatched to natural disasters across the globe.
"You don't really ever get used to seeing someone so crushed, so devastated," Zakhary explains.
