Fires Shut Down Southern California College of Construction

Posted by Taylor Morris on October 31, 2007

I am sure you have heard by now about the wild fires in California. It has been reported by various sources that over 2,000 homes and businesses have been destroyed or damaged, over 1 million people evacuated, and over 1 billion dollars in damage. The wildfires began on October 21. By now, most of the fires have been contained, and evacuees are returning “home,”(but not necessarily to their “houses”). Although a minor event throughout the fires, the National Association of Heavy Equipment Schools (NAHETS), was affected, as the member college-Southern California College of Construction (SCCC) was shut down due to the fires. From October 22-24 the campus was not in operation due to the heavy smoke and ash in the air. The hearts of NAHETS and SCCC staffs go out to all those affected by the disaster. Here is what it looked like in San Bernardino (location of SCCC):
