    Apparently many from a sorority at South Carolina.
    Ugh. As the father of two around this age, this makes my stomach hurt.

    Really sad. I wonder what the cause of the fire will be determined to be.

    Amazing how often newspaper carriers end up in the middle of situations like this. Poor guy had to fight to keep kids from running back into the house. He knew they'd only be killing themselves.

    Awful. I've got a nephew at South Carolina. Can't imagine what that campus is going to be like.

    I really hope they had smoke detectors in this place.

    According to the story it did. It was a vacation home for the family of one of the students.

    I must've missed that, AQB. Either way, my condolences to the families.
