Classes resume at Cuesta College after power outage Wednesday

Classes resume at Cuesta College's San Luis Obispo campus this morning after a power outage affected Wednesday night classes. Electricity was out for about five hours.

The problem was located in 1970-era wiring that's scheduled for an upgrade next month.

Classes in Building 1000, the physical education and athletics complex, which is one of the oldest structures on the campus, are being moved until repairs are completed.

Building 4000, the Children's Center, will also reopen today.

Cal Fire officials responded to campus about 5 p.m. Wednesday after a center employee smelled smoke. No students or children were in the building at the time.

The problem was traced to ventilation system fans. The center will reopen for classes and child care while repairs continue.
