A fire destroyed almost everything a Texas man owned, except for one thing -- his Bible.

"He said that His word would not perish, and that Bible did not burn," Charles House told KLTV.

House said he woke up Saturday morning to the smell of smoke and flames quickly spreading around his home, which was set up in a storage building that was converted into a home.

He was living there, saving money for a larger home.

The house was a total loss, but he did notice one thing as he rummaged through what was left, his Bible sat upon a charred side table, scorched but not destroyed, KLTV reported.

The cause of the house fire was "hazardous wiring" that caused the circuits to overload. The fire started inside the walls of the house and spread to the ceiling, KLTV reported.
