WASHINGTON (AP) - A George Washington University dormitory was temporarily evacuated after a fire broke out on the roof.

D.C. Battalion Chief Robert Callahan says the fire broke out on the roof of Fulbright Hall around 3:15 a.m. Tuesday and was under control within half an hour. Video from the scene shows flames shooting from the roof of the eight-story dormitory that houses about 250 second year students.

Callahan says students were evacuated from the apartment building and no one was injured. He says the blaze did not displace any of the students and they were able to return to the building.

The cause remains under investigation.
