Fire broke out early this morning shortly after an all-night party and just hours before traditional Mother's Day graduation ceremonies.
Those who didn't already know what happened found out at commencement, where the smell of smoke lingered throughout the ceremonies.

Tearful students comforted each other and stunned friends and families of the victims came to see the charred, 3 story brick building for themselves.
Investigators haven't pinpointed a cause.
One official says the fraternity's fire exits may have been bolted shut, probably to prevent burglaries.
One witness described the scene..
THE FLAMES WERE JUST COMING OUT OF EVERYTHING. THE WINGS OF THE BUILDING WHERE THE FIRE ESCAPES WERE, WERE STILL REACHABLE. YOU COULD GET OUT. THERE WERE NO FLAMES COMING OUT THERE. I GUESS YOU COULDN'T GET OUT FROM INSIDE."

They have found both of the DC-9's engines, but they remain submerged.
They have not yet found the flight recorders, which investigators hope will shed some light on what happened to flight 592.
The national transportation safety board confirms the navigator radioed that the plane was filled with smoke just before the crash.
ROBERT FRANCIS, NATIONAL TRANSP.SAFETY BOARD:
The everglades are posing an immense challenge to investigators.
The mucky combination of water and mud is said to be up to 40-feet thick in some places, making it virtually impossible to extract bodies or airplane parts.
One idea is to build a pontoon bridge from a nearby levy.
Another is to build a dam around the spot and drain all the water.
One thing seems certain, this salvage won't be ending any time soon.

As for ValuJet, the FAA is launching an intensive review of the airline's safety and maintenance procedures.
But both the company and the U.S. transportation secretary reassure travelers that despite past problems, the airline is as safe as any other.
