Fire engulfs the Branch Davidian compound near Waco, Texas, April 19, 1993. Eighty-one Davidians, including leader David Koresh, perished as federal agents tried to drive them out of the compound. A few weeks earlier four agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms were slain in a shootout at the site, and six cult members were found dead inside. Hearings into the raid and its aftermath are scheduled to open in the House of Representatives Wednesday, July 19, 1995. (AP Photo/Ron Heflin)
