    A Maine woman credits her late husband with waking her up during a fire that destroyed her home, and as proof she's pointing to one of the few things to survive the blaze - his wedding ring.

    Joyce Bragg's home in the town of China was destroyed Feb. 5 by a fire likely started by a wood stove.

    The 67-year-old Bragg tells the Morning Sentinel she was asleep when she awoke to the smell of smoke and escaped.

    Her son-in-law, sorting through the rubble, found a cardboard box containing her diamond ring and her husband's wedding band. Wayne Bragg died in a car crash four years ago.

    Bragg says "I know my husband was there to save me and wake me up. ... Why didn't the rings melt, but everything else did?"
