Since 1909 Texas A&M University students and alumni have worked together each year to build a massive bonfire. The stack of several thousand logs collapsed early morning on November 18, 1999, killing Lucas and eleven other students and injuring at least 27 others. Bonfire was canceled that year. It was to have been ignited on Thanksgiving evening as a prelude to Texas A&M's November 26 morning football game with The University of Texas.
