Fire at UQAR forces class cancellations

May 14, 2009

The Université du Québec à Rimouski cancelled classes and closed its on-campus daycare centre yesterday after a fire broke out overnight in the roof of the school's central building. Police say damage to the building is estimated at over $3 million. The roof was undergoing renovation, but it is not yet clear if the repairs were linked to the blaze. Montreal Gazette
