FAIRLAWN, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio woman who lost nearly all her belongings in an apartment fire says her LeBron James bobblehead survived virtually unscathed, and she hopes that’s a good omen.

The Akron Beacon Journal (https://bit.ly/1E1ArBE ) reports the doll from James’ rookie NBA season had only a bit of water damage to the original packaging after the fire Monday in suburban Fairlawn.

Fifty-six-year-old Sheila Shuttlesworth says she was amazed to find her treasured bobblehead and hopes it’s a sign, as she puts it, “for something good to come our way.”

She says she’s long been a fan of the basketball superstar from Akron, who returned to the Cleveland Cavaliers this season.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Shuttlesworth didn’t have renter’s insurance, but the family received help from the Red Cross.
