'God Was With Us': House Fire Rages, but Couple Finds Bible Unharmed

(YouTube/News 4 (WOAI) San Antonio)

A Texas couple is lucky to be alive after an early-morning house fire on Christmas took all of their belongings—except the family Bible.

WOAI-TV reports that Robert and Darla Voigt's mobile home in San Antonio is a total loss after flames tore through it Saturday.

"I always thought this will never happen to me... that's a lie," said Robert.

They said it's a blessing that everyone is OK, and what was left behind in the rubble, some might even call miraculous.

Reporter Amanda Henderson from News 4/Fox San Antonio tweeted images of the devastation and what remains of the family's home. Fighting back the tears, Darla holds up their Bible.

"Not one page is burnt in the Bible. Not one page," Robert told the news outlet.
