An Amish community is building a new garage for the northern New York couple who returned two kidnapped Amish girls to their home.

Jeffrey and Pamela Stinson tell the Watertown Daily Times  that the garage at their home in St. Lawrence County recently burned down while they were on vacation in Maine.

The family of the abducted girls plans to build the Stinsons a new garage later this week.

Police say the Amish sisters, ages 7 and 12, were abducted from their family's property in Oswegatchie on August 13. Officials say they were held captive by a man and a woman who freed them the next day, when the girls showed up at the Stinson home.

The suspects were arrested Aug. 15 and charged with kidnapping.
