Malaysia official: Improper wall blocked exit in deadly fire

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia -- A Malaysian official said a wall that blocked students and teachers from an exit that might have saved them from a deadly fire "shouldn't have been there."

The fire early Thursday killed 24 people in an Islamic school dormitory on the outskirts of Malaysia's capital, Kuala Lumpur.

Officials said the blaze blocked the only exit, leaving victims trapped behind barred windows.
