A fire that consumed most of a Wellsville, Utah home on Saturday reignited early Monday morning but spared at least one family treasure. Matt Leishman said he was surprised to go through the rubble of his parents’ home Monday afternoon and find one room that was virtually untouched — the one containing many years’ worth of his mother’s family genealogical records.
The family was able to fully recover all the documents related to the family history, although some were soaked with water.
“The only thing I can say is, God was watching that room,” Leishman said Tuesday. “Because, for some reason, that room didn’t burn. All the rooms around it were burned.”
