Jesus Statue Only Thing Left Standing In House Burned By TN Wildfire

GATLINBURG, TN – You could call it a miracle after a Jesus Statue was the only thing left standing following the wildfires that devastated a house in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.

The picture was taken by reporter, Kelsey Leyrer at our CBS affiliate WVLT as they captured the devastation in Sevier County.

The statue of Jesus is covered in soot and ashes but still standing among the debris of the home.

Earlier this week Isaac McCord, an employee at the Dollywood theme park, found a partially burned page from the Bible’s book of Joel.
