TKE House Residents

About 32 Tau Kappa Epsilon members in Maryville are without their fraternity house for at least the next month or two after a fire heavily damaged it early Friday morning.

The fire, which investigators are treating as suspicious, destroyed several bedrooms on the house's north side and went up walls, nearly destroying part of the attic. Kenneth Hamilton is past president of the TKE fraternity and says about 65 active members still live off campus in Maryville, and others have offered to help with housing once school starts back up later this month.

Ironically it was just last summer that the Fire Department of Maryville Public Safety asked the TKE's to use their fraternity house during a training exercise. The house was empty during Friday morning's blaze and there were no injuries.
