York University is without heat after a fire damaged steam boilers at the school’s Keele campus. The building was evacuated, and students and non-essential staff in the rest of the university were sent home by 3pm, although no injuries have been reported. While students were able to continue writing exams Monday afternoon, the university is rescheduling exams that were to take place Monday evening. “Right now, the major problem is that this fire has affected our ability to provide heat,” a York spokesman told the Toronto Star. The university is also exploring options to temporarily relocate students living in residence.
UPDATE: Heat back on at York
