SETON HALL SAYS DORM HIT BY FIRE HELD NO RECENT DRILLS

Seton Hall University students said they couldn't recall having fire drills, and school officials have admitted there were none last semester at the freshman dormitory where three students died in a fire last week.

Investigators looking into the cause of Wednesday's fire in Boland Hall are seeking records on the building, including reports on whether required fire drills were conducted, officials said.

University spokeswoman Lisa E. Grider said Boland had no planned fire drills in the fall semester.

William Cane, director of the state Division of Fire Safety, said college dormitories in New Jersey have been required since at least 1995 to have two fire drills a year and maintain reports on the drills.
