On the doorstep where her home once stood, a man suggested to his girlfriend on Sunday after the deadly campfire in California destroyed their house in paradise.
Lukas Schnoor, 27, "kept a special promise on Sunday" asked 24-year-old Cassie Oxley to marry him. He wrote on Facebook that he was praying to God and asked him to return Oxley after the fire that killed at least 86 people in November.
"I told him that I have no room to ask for favor, but that I know Kassie's love and trust in him, I asked him to find the strength to come back to me," he wrote , "I promised him that she would make it into my arms again, that his job is complete and that I will take care of her for the rest of my life."
Oxley shouted in an online video when Schnoor asked the question. As the two stood on the back of their house, they hugged each other emotionally as Oxley asked the person they were filming, "Did you know?"
FAMILY DOG SURVIVES
After the campfire burned down their house, the two said that they realized they needed each other. Schnoor said the inferno "[has created] more growth between us with the stress and tension" and that they "had to resort to each other".
Oxley and Schnoor are reportedly to stay with their loved ones while they decide to rebuild a house in paradise.
