College living: Fires stem more from behavior than location

Email

Thousands of students will soon be reporting to Minnesota college campuses; more than 100,000 attend public institutions, alone. Many will live in off-campus housing, and some will be living away from home for the first time. The Minnesota State Fire Marshal reminds students and parents that this is the time to study up on fire safety issues.

Statistics from the Campus Firewatch Program show that 80 percent of college fire fatalities in the U.S. occur in off-campus housing.
