The sounds of buzzing chain saws and toppling trees filled a nearby forest Saturday as Texas A&M students and alumni worked to revive their bonfire tradition, on hold since a deadly collapse in 1999. Wearing colored hard hats signifying leadership positions and wielding axes and machetes, the volunteers searched the woods east of College Station for dead elm trees to cut down and eventually burn. They plan to light a 10- to 15-foot-high, off-campus bonfire Nov. 24.
