NU Regents Look At Fire Safety At Dorms

The tragic fraternity fire at Nebraska Wesleyan University five months ago is now raising questions about fire safety at the University of Nebraska.

The University Board of Regents held a hearing to discuss fire safety at all of their campuses.

They say they don't want to take any chances.

They're considering taking twelve million dollars out of their surplus student living expense fund.

The money would pay for sprinklers and other fire protection equipment.

More than 9,000 students live in University of Nebraska housing.

Almost 2,000 students live in Greek housing.   

The university's Omaha campus is the only one with sprinklers installed in all its housing.   

The Lincoln campus needs more than a million dollars in fire safety improvements.

Officials say the Kearney campus is in need of the most improvement.

That will cost upwards of 10 million dollars.

The proposed plan would take ten years to be complete.
