COLUMBIA, MO (KTVI)-- Saturday's tragic walkway collapse that killed a firefighter at Mizzou is leading to inspections of every building on campus.

Since the walkway collapse, the university has installed two-by-fours to re-enforce what's left of the walkway in the university village apartment complex.

The complex was built in the 1950s and today houses mostly international students and married students with kids.

University officials say inspectors deemed the other apartment buildings safe, but have some concerns about other walkways, which is why shoring has been installed.
