Cal State San Bernardino Reopens For Classes

California State University, San Bernardino reopened for classes and other activities Wednesday following the wildfire that burned several structures on campus Saturday.

The fire destroyed one temporary building containing five classrooms (TC 13-17). Classes using those rooms have been relocated to other facilities on campus. A listing of the relocated classrooms is posted at the university’s Web page at www.csusb.edu and will also be distributed on campus near the burned buildings.

Although not damaged, the children’s center at Cal State San Bernardino will remain closed until it is fully cleaned and prepared for operation. It is expected to reopen Thursday.

Before reopening Wednesday, buildings, classrooms and residence halls were cleaned and deodorized, air filters changed and cleaned, and fire alarms reset. The campus has been inspected to assure it is safe for normal operations.

Aside from the damage to the temporary facilities, the fire did not burn any major structures on campus and there were no injuries.
