A decade ago, fire raged through the Branch Davidian compound near Waco, Texas. More than 80 people died, 22 of them children. The fire followed a raid by federal agents on a religious sect led by David Koresh. The events of April 19, 1993 are still being disputed. Hear NPR's Lynn Neary and NPR's Wade Goodwyn.
