A couple were able to find a glimmer of hope amid devastation when they discovered their wedding rings had survived their house being burned to the ground by wildfires.
Jason and Chloe Caroll lost everything when their home in Vacaville was destroyed by fire in California as flames ravaged the countryside near San Francisco.
The couple and their two young sons were forced to flee when flames “taller than trees” raged towards their home last month.
And when the pair realised they had left their wedding rings behind in a basket in their bathroom, the duo tried to return to save them only to find it was already too late and their house was ablaze.
Within 48 hours, the home was reduced to nothing but rubble and ash as the fires devastated the property.
Mr and Mrs Caroll were sad to see all their possessions had been completely destroyed – but were then thrilled to find their rings had survived the inferno.
Speaking to LadBible, Mr Caroll said: "I didn't imagine something can be discovered, and I believed if it was discovered, it would be melted to nothing.”

His wife added: "I acquired one thing that I believed was utterly gone.
"It offers you a bit of 'we can do this'. It offers you a bit of hope."
The rings were found with the help of Mrs Caroll’s aunt, Denise, who sifted through the wreckage and discovered the rings underneath a coat of ash right where the bathroom had been.

Mrs Caroll was particularly delighted, fearing: "I thought for sure they'd be gone. I thought they'd be melted."
Wildfires were ignited by lightning strikes in Northern California last month with the wildfires burning from 17 August.
The flames continue to burn in the norther part of the US state and have claimed five lives so far.
