Fire Victims Wait to Salvage Belongings

   They're still waiting for a chance to salvage through the site of last weeks devastating fire at a Longview apartment section, to recover personal items and pets that died in the blaze. Many victims still hold out hope that maybe somewhere in the ashes, some of their possessions are undamaged. Others lost family pets in the fire and simply want to recover them for burial. But investigators say the burned out structures are not safe, and anyone going in, would risk being hurt by a wall or roof collapse. Fire crews will return for a salvage operation at a later date on behalf of the victims.
