Stepping carefully through the scorched remains, Stormy Dean pointed to the wall that connects to her 5-year-old daughter Jenna’s bedroom. The Christmas tree withered. The aquarium cracked. But that wall, what Dean called “a miracle,” bore no marks from the flames.“ As bad as this fire is, God had his hand on this child, because there’s no fire damage in her room,” Dean said.
