VIDEOS: This weekend’s graduation day marks 25 years since a tragic fire in a UNC fraternity house killed five students.
The painful date is etched in local memory: May 12, 1996.
It was graduation day – and Mother’s Day.
A smoldering cigarette sent the Phi Gamma Delta house up in flames, killing five students and injuring three on what should have been a happy day of commencement.
