NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- Residents of Fisher Hall were evacuated to the South Dining Hall at 5:30 a.m. Thursday because of an electrical fire in a student room, according to the University of Notre Dame.

Two rooms had smoke and water damage.

Initially, just one student was assessed for smoke inhalation. Three other students were evaluated a short time later. Two were transported to Memorial Hospital for further testing. All students were back at campus by 4:20 p.m.
