Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — Some LSU students were forced out of their dorm rooms as part of a full scale fire exercise on campus.
The drill was at Hergert Hall. It involved the Red Cross, LSU's Emergency Operations Center, and firefighters.
The drill included artificial smoke, evacuations, and search and rescue operations. Officials tell us one of the goals of the drill is to enhance the table top exercises they do.
Students involved say this drill wasn't like any other they've been in.
The drill lasted about four hours total, and students were let back in to the dorm around noon.
