Omaha, NE (AP) - Firefighters are on the scene of a two-alarm fire at an apartment dormitory on the University of Nebraska at Omaha campus.

The fire was reported shortly before 3:30 p.m. Wednesday. There were no immediate reports of injuries.

Flames could be seen shooting from the roof of one of UNO's Scott Village student apartment complexes, located on the university's Pacific campus at 64th and Pacific streets.

UNO spokesman Charley Reed says displaced students are being asked to go to the Scott Conference Center next door to the apartments or to nearby Mammel Hall.

Parents of UNO students can call 402-778-6211 for more information.

There's no word yet on the cause of the fire.

The Scott Village student housing complex is made up of four-bedroom units, each with a kitchen.
