An Old Dominion University spokeswoman says unattended cooking caused a fire in a school dorm that displaced eight students.
The fire occurred Sunday afternoon at the four-story Surry House. Fire officials say no one was injured.
University spokeswoman Jennifer Mullen told "The Virginian-Pilot" that few students were in the dorm because the school is on fall break.
Mullen says a student put a pot on a stove and then fell asleep.
Four students in the apartment where the fire occurred and four in a neighboring apartment will be moved to other residence halls temporarily.
