Offices and classrooms in Fresno State’s Agricultural Sciences building are set to reopen Wednesday after water damage was cleaned up and electrical power was restored.
But the building will be without hot water, heat or air conditioning until a heat exchanger is replaced, the school said. Several classes are held in three classrooms, affecting approximately 2,000 students.
A half-century-old heat exchanger burst Monday morning, flooding the building’s basement and prompting the university to shut off electrical power to the building. The school said university crews and outside firms worked Monday and Tuesday to replace electrical cable, dry electrical equipment and test the transformer for damage. No damage was found.
