Jeremy Berry called the Emmons Junior Building home. He's lived there for the last six months. We asked him what was the one thing he could go back in and get. His answer:

"Pictures of my mother. She passed away a while back and that's all I have left."

Jeremy lived in Apartment 108, just a few doors down from Number 103, where investigators now say the fire started.

We tried to get in touch with the residents of Apartment 103 today but a family member says they're still very shaken by the experience but did not want to comment on the investigation's findings today.

Resident can contact a representative of the Emmons apartment to schedule a time to go back to retrieve some of their personal belongings. Residents should call: (304) 741-1417 for more information.

Emmons representatives are also offering fire victims clothing, toiletries, baby clothing and other items Thursday at the Upperclassman Apartments on 4th Avenue between 9am and 9pm.
