Bonfire Stands Despite Burn

By  | 

Attendance was low, drama was high, and the stack still stands tall. It's been a wild couple of weeks in the life of the off-campus bonfire, and there appears to be life still left in it.

The Brazos County Sheriff's Office has been in contact with the attorney for the student bonfire. One burn ban citation was issued Saturday night when students tried to burn the stack. Eight others will be cited for attempting to burn it down, with time and date still to be determined.

Anyone issued a citation has 10 days to appear before a judge.

However, a new problem has arisen since stack would not burn down. Because of safety issues, engineers say the only way to bring it down is to burn it down.

The county burn ban remains in effect until December 6, but if drought conditions remain, the county commissioners could extend the ban.
