More than 200 Texas A&M students remembered 12 Aggies who lost their lives nine years ago in the bonfire collapse.

At 2-42 Tuesday morning, the exact moment and place the Bonfire stack collapsed, Aggies gathered at what is now the Bonfire Memorial to remember the 12 who died and the 27 who were hurt in 1999.

The university has not sanctioned a bonfire burn since then, but recently authorized settlements with the remaining family members who had suits pending against A&M.

The unsanctioned Student Bonfire is set to burn Saturday in Robertson County.

It will be the seventh time that organization has put together the pre-UT game tradition off campus.
