    A man was shot in the hand during a robbery on Charleston's east end on July 22 at about 10:30 a.m.

An 18-month-old baby and three adults are lucky to be alive after an early morning fire.

It happened on the 34-hundred block of Coopers Creek Road in Kanawha County just before 3:30 a.m.

Daniel Baird said he had lived at this house for 22 years.

He was sleeping when his son banged on the door screaming that the house was on fire.  His son and wife jumped out the back window, along with their baby.

Baird ran down the stairs and through the front of the house.

Firefighters said the fire started on the porch and quickly spread to the attic.

A Sissonville volunteer firefighter was injured when the ceiling collapsed on him. He is going to be okay.

Baird said he has no idea how he is going to repair the damage.  He has insurance but said it will not cover the entire cost.
