David Koresch and his Branch Dividians were headquartered at Mount Carmel Center in Axtell, Texas, at the time.

Paul Venema was there and had just completed his live shot for the noon news when his photographer noticed smoke. Moments later, the compound was in flames.

Venema sat down with Leslie Mouton and David Sears on GMSA at 9 to talk about his experience.
