MANCHESTER, N.H. — Fire officials say a Southern New Hampshire University dorm was damaged but no one was hurt when the three-story building caught fire.

A university spokeswoman said all 55 students escaped unharmed Saturday night.

Manchester District Fire Chief Hank Martineau said Greeley Hall suffered severe damage before the fire was brought under control. Six of the 12 units were heavily damaged.

The university put the students up in a hotel for the night. Officials say the cause of the blaze is under investigation.
