USC To Hold Classes In Wake Of Fatal Fire

Classes will be held Monday at the University of South Carolina, but counselors will be available to help those coping with the loss of six seven classmates.

Seven people died Sunday in fire at a beach house at Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina, that also injured six others. Those six were
treated at hospital and released.

Officials say six of those killed were students at the University of South Carolina, as were the six who survived. The seventh person who died was a student at Clemson University.

Ocean Isle Beach Mayor Debbie Smith says the private home was being used by the owner's daughter and a group of her friends.

USC officials say the fire appears to have affected two Greek
organizations -- the Delta Delta Delta sorority and the Sigma Alpha
Epsilon fraternity.
