CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A new program is aimed at improving the safety of rental housing for college students.
The new Cincinnati Safe Student Housing website lists apartment and rental homes that have passed a safety inspection by the Cincinnati Fire Department.
The program was launched in the memory of several Cincinnati college students who lost their lives in off-campus fires.
More than 245 units have been inspected since the beginning of July.
Two city council members have also proposed an ordinance that would require photoelectric smoke detectors inside all Cincinnati rental properties.
