LUTHER, Oklahoma -

The rain didn't stop volunteers in Luther from helping homeowners clean up the aftermath of the recent wildfires.

Some families lost their homes and everything inside.

Boy Scouts joined about 60 Southern Baptist volunteers to help go through the ashes and try to salvage belongings. Suzy Koch was grateful for the help. She certainly didn't expect for one of the Boy Scouts to find a lost treasure.

"We found a bible that was her great grandmothers and there's some readable scripture on the front of it, ‘I am always with you,'" said Boy Scout, Darren Midkiff.

The Southern Baptist volunteers' are from Edmond and Arcadia. They were just in Fort Collins, Colorado but were called back to help out at home.
