Cochise County Sheriff seeks owners of Monument Fire recovered valuables

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Something special has risen from the ashes of the Monument Fire, which burned dozens of homes and thousands of acres near Sierra Vista this summer.

The Cochise County sheriff's office wants to find the owners of several valuable coins and other precious metals that survived the flames.

The items were found in the debris removed from burned areas, so it's impossible to tell where they came from.

The owners must describe the unique items in order to claim them.
