A Grammy-winning singer-songwriter hopes to rebuild his home and recording studio that were destroyed by a fire.

Fellow musicians have been helping Humberto ‘Beto’ Ramon clear his burned-out home in the Annaville area.

They're even camping out on the Veda Drive property so they don't waste any time.

A faulty electrical outlet sparked the fire last Saturday.

And Beto said he's determined to rebuild one way or another.

"Some will have to be replaced, but we're going to try to fix it up,” said Ramon. “At least good enough to live in it again. It doesn't have to be luxury. It doesn't have to be the way it was, just the basic necessities."

Ramon said the fire also destroyed the original recordings of some of his songs, and about $30K worth of musical instruments.
