Posted Updated

RALEIGH, N.C. — A fire forced students to evacuate the Talley Student Center at North Carolina State University Thursday afternoon.

Authorities say the fire broke out in the cafeteria, following after a malfunction with a deep fat fryer.

Officials say there was no damage, but the kitchen area behind Little Dino's in the food commons area will be closed Thursday night because of chemicals used to put the fire out.

Students were allowed to return to the student center.
