Do you remember where you were when Bonfire collapsed? Most do.

John Comstock certainly does. He was there, under the rubble, finally pulled to safety--but not without injury.

"It's been 20 years, and I've finally gotten myself back to a good place in life," said Comstock, acknowledging the anniversary coming this November. "I felt like it's time to share my story, and inspire people; help them in any way that I can by sharing my story."

That's why Comstock is now working with Charlie Minn, a documentary director who agrees that it's time to tell this story.

The documentary, set to be released this fall near the 20th anniversary, will feature families and survivors like Comstock.

Furthermore, it will feature people like you, maybe, who are willing to share what they remember about the night Bonfire collapsed.

"It's an open call to anyone to go on camera and share how it affected them," said Minn.

The open call is Saturday, May 4, at 2:30 p.m. at the Premiere Cinemas in Bryan. Minn says everyone is welcome to stop by and be a part of this documentary.
