While one LDS family watched a fire racing toward their property, they said a prayer that it would be protected. The answer they received was rather unexpected.
Jeanette Empey has titled the photo “The Fireman’s Guardian.” If you take a close look, you’ll see why.
Empey’s husband, Bruce, took the picture on their ranch in Bone on Tuesday as the Henry’s Creek fire nearly destroyed their property.
“My husband and son went up to the ranch Monday night after learning the fire had jumped the Bone Road and was heading toward our place,” Empey tells EastIdahoNews.com. “Firemen showed up and told my husband the cabins were going to be a loss and for safety reasons, he should leave.”
Empey says her husband and son went up on a cliff that overlooks the ranch, and “all they could do was watch it burn.”
