UPDATE - Newswatch has learned that no one was injured in the Lee Street Fire Monday morning, even the family cat made it out alive.  The home's tenants said they were living elsewhere because their landlord was working on the building's utilities, but everything they owned was destroyed. 

"It's all gone," said Jacob Grimes, "I mean what do we have to come home to, what do we have to be ours any more, it's nothing."

BECKLEY JUNCTION - Several departments responded to a structure fire in Raleigh County early Monday.
