MAGNA -- Habitat for Humanity kicked off its latest "blitz build" Monday morning in Magna.

Workers started the home at 6 a.m., and they'll work around the clock until they finish some time on Thursday night.

Utah companies have donated all the materials, and they're doing all the work at no charge. Habitat's executive director says it all comes down to a spirit of service.

"Really, the driving force is people caring about other people," said Stephen Tagliaferri, executive director of Salt Lake Valley Habitat for Humanity.

Normally, it takes nine to 12 months to build one of these homes. This is Habitat's 11th blitz build.
