Classes resume at church

December 11, 1991

Classes are scheduled to resume today in a Hagerstown church for students enrolled at Hagerstown Business College, which was destroyed by arson on Monday.

College officials said classes would be held today and tomorrow at First Christian Church on Potomac Avenue. Friday's classes have been canceled, but exams will be held as scheduled next week at the church.

David Toma, finance vice president for O/E Learning Inc., a Detroit-based educational corporation that owns the college, said plans were under way to rebuild the school.

The Monday morning fire caused at least $2 million in damage to the one-story building that contains classrooms and computer laboratories as well as offices. Fire investigators said they had no suspects in the fire. A $5,000 reward has been offered for information leading to the arrest of the arsonist.
