Thirty-three vehicles were damaged Tuesday in a fire in a parking garage on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus.

Lincoln officials say that the fire started in the engine compartment of a 1991 Grand Prix parked in the garage.

UNL Inspector Richard Firebaugh said the university will bring in a structural engineer to be sure the garage is safe.
