Victims of Sunday's tragic apartment fire in Jacksonville continue the cleanup process this week, hoping to salvage anything from their scorched apartments.

Fire ripped through Beacham's Apartments early Sunday, destroying 16 units.

More than 32 tenants have been displaced. Fire officials are still unable to determine a cause to the blaze, because they are unable to go inside the downstairs apartments where they believe it started for fear of the roof collapsing.

We caught up with tenant Holli Bennett, who says its been a devastating week, but luckily she just found out she has renters insurance, after talking to her husband in Iraq.

Bennett has been unable to go back into her apartment because its a downstairs unit, and fire officials believe their is a risk of the roof collapsing.
