Fire-Damaged Sac State Buildings To Reopen

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Both buildings damaged in a series of fires on campus at Sacramento State will reopen on Monday, and few classes will be impacted by the ongoing investigation.

University officials said all floors of Mendocino Hall will be open beginning at 7:00 a.m. Monday, and all scheduled classes will proceed as planned.

Classes located on the first, second, third and fifth floors of Mariposa Hall will proceed normally. The fourth floor will also be reopened with the exception of Suite 4000, which is still the center of the investigation into the cause of the fires, officials said.

Students with classes in Suite 4000 will be notified through e-mail about contingency plans.

On Thursday, three fires were reported within about an hour’s time, prompting evacuations in the two buildings and briefly trapping one person, although no injuries were reported.

State fire officials have released few details about potential causes of the fires.
