Woman Whose Astronaut Husband Died Escapes House Fire

Cheryl McNair's astronaut husband, Ron McNair, perished aboard the Challenger space shuttle, which broke apart 73 seconds after liftoff in 1986. Now, Cheryl has survived a harrowing ordeal of her own, escaping from her suburban Houston home just in the nick of time after it went up in flames last month. She feared priceless mementos from her husband might be lost in the blaze, but many were able to be salvaged from the burned-out home.
