    Firefighters return ring that miraculously survived wildfires 58 years apart

    As Southern California residents continue to recover from the devastating effects of recent wildfires, firefighters were sent on a heartfelt mission to return a beloved item that survived the flames in the Getty Fire.
    Los Angeles Fire Department The Los Angeles Fire Department found a ring in a burned-out home following the Getty Fire on Oct. 30, 2019. It turns out the same ring had survived the 1961 Bel Air Fire and was reunited with its owner.
    On Wednesday, a Los Angeles Fire Department crew located asmall ring box in front of a charred home that was destroyed in the blaze, the department posted on Facebook.
    Upon opening the box, firefighters found a beautiful ring encased in a plush, velvet cushion that somehow miraculously survived the flames. Crew members assumed the ring was important to whomever it belonged to and delivered it to the command post for safe keeping.
    Several days later, after residents were able to safely return home, firefighters scoured the neighborhood to locate the ring's owner.
    They came to find out the ring survived two separate wildfires that erupted decades apart: the Getty Fire in 2019 and the Bel AirFire in 1961. The property was among hundreds destroyed in the Bel Air Fire,with the ring the only possession to survive. Years later, the property wasrebuilt only to be destroyed in the Getty Fire. The ring survived the flames yet again.
    Ironically, the homeowner's mother, who owned the property when it was first destroyed in the Bel Air Fire, was at the residence last weekwhen they had to evacuate.
    Firefighters say the homeowner and her mother are"beyond happy" and "speechless" to have their ring back.
    Gene Blevins/Reuters The Getty Fire burns along the 405 freeway north of LosAngeles, Oct. 28, 2019.
    The Getty Fire, which burned across 745 acres, erupted on Oct. 28 in the Brentwood area, according to firefighters. Ten homes were destroyed in the blaze and 15 others sustained damage.
    The fire is believed to have been accidentally sparked by a tree branch that broke off and landed on nearby power lines, which ignited nearby brush, according to investigators.
