Diamonds, created deep below by extreme heat and pressure, melt at 6,000°F. Gold melts at roughly 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit, which is enough to survive most house fires. Cool and cover burns to prevent further injury or infection. Tell your loved ones you're safe. Serious injuries or burns should be taken to a doctor or veterinarian promptly. Shelter, medication, food, drink, and clothing are the most basic needs following a fire.
