Rebuilding in Rutland

A Rutland man is rebuilding through the ashes after his landscaping business was destroyed by fire earlier this year.

Skip Pratico proudly shows the new structure on route 7 where his Pratico's landscaping business is located. In January a blaze brought his business to the ground. Pratico made a daring move for his life when he found himself surrounded by flames - jumping from the second floor sustaining minor injuries. Despite a tough winter, Pratico says he is on his way to re-opening in 2 weeks.

"It's just a great feeling to drive down Route 7 and see something here finally. It was very depressing the first month or so," said Skip Pratico.

The new building does not have a second floor, and Pratico says that was absolutely done on purpose.
