Classes will resume at Camosun College’s Interurban campus Wednesday morning, days after three buildings were targeted during an arson spree early Sunday morning.
The Centre for Business and Access (CBA), Centre for Trades Education and Innovation (CTEI), and the Pacific Institute for Sport Excellence (PISE) had been closed since the series of deliberately set fires on the weekend. Classes in those buildings were also cancelled.
There was some damage to the buildings but there were also concerns over the air quality. On Tuesday, Camosun College officials said air quality results show it is well below WorkSafeBC limits.
Classes will start at normal times on Wednesday and students are advised they may notice some unusual scents in the buildings, which are normal after fire restoration. Access to the first floor of the PISE building will be limited as repairs continued.
Thirty-year-old Aaron Raschke has been charged with 10 counts including break and enter, theft, mischief and five counts of arson in connection with the incident. He remains in custody.
