FAIRFIELD - A woman who witnessed a devastating car fire on I-95 in Fairfield over the weekend says she was overwhelmed by the incredible acts of heroism she saw as fellow motorists freed two people trapped by smoke and flames.

Gloria Raymond says about 20 people braved the fire as they tried to get to the couple trapped inside the car.

Raymond says a group of men grabbed the 63-year-old driver who told them his wife was still in the vehicle. She says one of the men then went to the car and pulled her out through the back passenger-side door.

The victim?s wife, 67-year-old Mary Hughes, later died from her injuries
