This couple will remember the day their automobile caught fire for the rest of their lives.
According to NBC station WSMV-TV, Brooklynn Stevens and Myers Hart were travelling in a rental car with a buddy in Tennessee on May 9 when they heard a “loud blast.”
Although they were all able to flee the truck safely before it “went up in flames,” Hart informed the magazine that he instantly realized one very essential item remained inside: an engagement ring.․․
After firefighters extinguished the flames, they were cleverly informed of the car’s valuable cargo.․․
“During the salvage and overhaul of the car, rescuers made a critical SAVE,” Williamson Fire-Rescue stated on Facebook, adding that “the driver had recently purchased an engagement ring for his girlfriend.”
Fortunately, despite the fact that “almost all contents and the vehicle were destroyed,” the ring box housing this “extremely significant object” was rescued with little harm.
According to Steve Hopkins, a volunteer fire engineer, the box was “melted against the seat,” while the ring itself “appeared brand new.”
“It was truly a miracle,” Hopkins added.․․
It may not have been the most conventional occasion to propose, but Hart told WSMV-TV that the fact that the ring survived the fire was “a sign.”
“He goes down on one knee, and I’m like, ‘Here?’” Stevens remembered. “‘Here?’ I asked. How about right now? Are you serious, like the automobile just caught fire? Yes, I mean it! Yes, of course I do. ‘However, like the vehicle.’”
