Firefighters made quick work of a fire that broke out in a USC dorm room Sunday evening, leaving a handful of students displaced, officials said.
The blaze was reported about 11:17 p.m. at a three-story residence hall on the campus, according to Battalion Chief Jaime Moore of the Los Angeles Fire Department.
Firefighters arrived to find heavy flames and dark black smoke emanating from a dorm room on the third floor of the building. Students had already begun evacuating the structure as overhead sprinklers helped mitigate the fire, Moore said.
The blaze was knocked down within three minutes, the battalion chief said. No one was injured.
