line of action after roof leak

This may be the wrong place to ask, but what do I do with framing members and OSB decking that got soaked by a leaking porch roof? So far, I have the soffit opened up to let it all dry out naturally... should I turn a fan on it? Spray it with bleach or some other chemical? Any tips to discourage wood rot and help speed up drying? Short of re-framing, of course

Thanks for any help.

Get fans on it right away. If your down here in FL home depot and lowes have fans just for this. A 50/50 mix of water and clorox helps on any mole.
