SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The State Fire Marshal's Office says they plan to formally inspect every Utah school within three years.
The marshal's chief deputy, Brent Halladay, said inspections of both public and private schools will be conducted.
Halladay said he issued the order to the marshal's inspectors on Monday, just a week after Wasatch Junior High School was destroyed in a fire. However, Halladay said this is NOT a knee-jerk reaction to what happened at the school.
The Utah State Office of Education says Utah has 920 public and an estimated one-hundred private schools.
