OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A University of Nebraska at Omaha dorm that was heavily damaged by fire earlier this year has been rebuilt and is ready for new students.

University officials say students will begin moving in to the rebuilt Scott Village dorm on Sunday, when students begin moving in for the new academic year.

The Feb. 26 fire destroyed the roof and third floor of the three-story building at UNO’s Scott Village. No students were injured. Investigators say the fire was caused by a discarded cigarette on an apartment balcony.
