A young man is breathing a little easier after nearly losing an engagement ring to a vehicle fire on Monday.
According to Williamson County Fire Rescue, fire crews were dispatched to a car fire off I-840 on Monday afternoon. Fire-Rescue crews arrived to find the vehicle fully involved and quickly moved to stop the flames.
Monday afternoon, Brooklynn Stevens and her high school sweetheart, Myers Hart, were driving a rental car when they heard a loud pop. Myers pulled off to the side of the road to check the car. He realized the car was on fire.
“There was a loud bang. I think the coolant reservoir blew and it shot the hood up and spewed fluid everywhere and then it went up in flames,” Myers said. “Her friend knew about it and we looked at each other and said, ‘the ring is in there and we couldn’t get it out,” Myers said by that point all they could do was pray the ring would make it through the fire.
