WILLIAMSON (WVVA) -- One person is dead after a fire in Mingo County Saturday.

The deceased is identified as Robert Mitchell Smith, 48.  Another man was injured with second and third degree burns. 

The fire started just after 5 a.m., on Pike Street and Third Avenue. 

All that's left is basically the shell of the building.  Five businesses and an apartment called the space home, and only one business remains.

Williamson fire chief calls the fire "persistent."  Three crews battled the blaze, but to no avail.
