Fire destroyed their home during Harvey. But a Virgin Mary statue survived

Texas woman after returning to burned home: "This statue is the only thing that survived."

(CNN)It wasn't just wind and rain that caused damage when Hurricane Harvey blasted through the Texas coast. Fires did their share too.

A family in Robstown, just west of Corpus Christi, lost their homes to a fire just as Harvey was hitting the area. The Rojas family had evacuated their three houses on property they own. They returned to a distressing sight: all three houses destroyed by fire.
But they also found something in the ashes that they say gave them hope -- an intact statue of the Virgin Mary.
    "Some may blame God and some may blame the hurricane but the only thing standing were holy things," Natali Rojas told CNN affiliate KRIS. "As you can see this statue is the only thing that survived. I dug in there for things and all I found is a Virgin Mary."
