Los Angeles Fire Department personnel responded about 8:41 p.m. to 1 Loyola Marymount University Drive (map), where the blaze broke out on the second floor of the three-story Eugenia B. Hannon Apartments, officials said.

The building was evacuated as firefighters worked to knock down the fire, which caused $14,000 in damage, according to authorities.

Two LMU security officers were examined for smoke exposure at the scene, the Fire Department said.

“Less than a dozen” occupants of the building, located in the southern section of the campus, were displaced by the fire but will remain in other on-campus accommodations, the LAFD said.
