Fire at New MU Housing Complex
About three dozen Columbia firefighters answered the alarm just after 2:00 p.m. They reported no injuries at the vacant dormitory complex, which is still under construction, at the corner of Stadium Boulevard and South Providence Road.
Fire officials said construction workers called 911 when the blaze started. Officials said they don't know yet what may have caused the fire.
MU officials said the new dorms were due to open in May, but now they may have to delay that date.
