Waycross -- The wild fires in Ware County has completely destroyed thousands of acres of land, property, and 18 homes.
While it burned almost everything in it's path, it left one thing still standing that's now a moving symbol to firefighters continuing to battle this massive blaze.
A firefighter at Moody Air Force base was killed in a car crash here in Waycross last September. Twenty-six-year-old Gerardo Garibay, Junior lost control of his Honda Civic while driving down Highway 84. He was ejected and killed.
Seven months later, wreaths and other items still mark where that accident occurred. And as the wildfire ripped through the area, it scorched everything around the memorial, but the memorial itself was left untouched. Not even the delicate plastic on a fire hat was melted.
Firefighters say seeing this sign on the side of the road gives them some hope to keep moving on in their battle to put out this blaze.
With no loss of life in this 56,000 acre wildfire, many also believe it's a sign that someone is watching over them-- and protecting them from the flames.
