An Alabama man is calling it a miracle.

Scott Byrd told Fox 10 his Bible survived a January fire that destroyed his home.

The veteran lived at the home for more than 20 years and lost everything in the fire, according to several media reports. But, the Bible his grandfather gave him came out unscathed. 

Byrd and his family weren't there when the fire started, Fox 10 and Fox News reported. It destroyed their belongings and claimed the life of their kitten.

According to Fox 10, multiple community groups have been donating clothing, schools supplies and beds to the Byrd family.

The family is now accepting donations.
