Stunned Miami Students Return To Class

Stunned Miami students return to class after fire that killed three

Stunned students trudged to class at Miami University this morning, a day after three classmates were killed in an off-campus fire.

Twenty-year-old Rhetta Bowers says people are still in shock. She says she went to class this morning but the teacher told the students he didn't feel it was right to have class and let them leave early.

The three students died early Sunday morning when fire spread through their off-campus house in Oxford. Butler County Coroner Richard Burkhardt has identified the victims as 21-year old Julia Turnbull of Milford, 21-year-old Kathryn Welling of Bronxville, New York and 22-year-old Stephen Smith of Bethesda, Maryland. Seven other people were able to escape. One had to jump from a second-story window.

Investigators plan to interview the survivors today.
