Engagement ring survives California wildfire

PARADISE, Calif. (KCRA) – A Paradise, California man has found a glimmer of hope among the ashes of his parents’ home that was recently destroyed in the Camp Fire.

On Wednesday, Nick Maes combed through the burnt rubble searching for a safe. Inside: an engagement ring he planned to give to his girlfriend of two years.
