Fire Destroys Texas Home During Harvey – All That is Left Is a Virgin Mary Statue (VIDEO)

A family in Robstown, Texas lost their home in Hurricane Harvey, not to flooding but to fire! The local firefighters came out during the hurricane to protect the home.

After the devastation the family found only one remaining item in what was once their home, a virgin Mary statue.

The only things they found standing were holy things.

Oklahoma News 4 reported:

It wasn’t just wind and rain that caused damage when Hurricane Harvey blasted through the Texas coast. Fires did its 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.”

The family said the Robstown Fire Department battled the flames even as the hurricane raged.
